Field Day is held all over the United States on the last weekend in June. Over 725,000 amateur operators in the U.S. (Over 2.5 million throughout the world) demonstrate their ability to provide emergency communications during times when natural disasters (such as hurricanes, tornadoes, wildfires) eliminate normal communications. Amateur operators can and do provide emergency communications for Red Cross, Salvation Army, Emergency Management, Hospitals, and other agencies when needed. This annual event is the climax of the week long "Amateur Radio Week" sponsored by the ARRL, the National Association for Amateur Radio.

More information about Field Day can be found at the ARRL Field Day website.

This field day will provide the general public an opportunity to observe amateur radio on the air. They will be operating on emergency power only, demonstrating they can continue operating when normal communications systems and power have been compromised by a disaster. If you have an interest in Amateur "Ham" Radio, or would like more information, this will be a great opportunity to learn and take part in several radio activities during the afternoon. Stations on site will include a CW (Morse Code), SSB (Single Side Band) and VHF (2Meter) radio. Area Licensed operators will be on hand to demonstrate operations, and answer your questions about Amateur Radio.
