ARRL-Field-Day-JUN2018It’s time to stop doing what you were doing and get ready for the ARRL Field Day – (Saturday – Sunday) June 23rd and 24th 2018.

Operators are encouraged to run the Radio’s off of Emergency Power Generators – to simulate Amateur Radio Operators – Operating during Emergency Environmental situations…(Hurricanes, Tornados, generic power/cell phone) outages and the like.  To learn more about the history of Field Day (Click Here).
