ARRL Field Day 2013

Posted by ks6m on June 21st, 2013

ARRL Field Day 2013 happens this weekend! ARRL Field Day is the single most popular on-the-air event held annually in the US and Canada. On the fourth weekend of June of each year, more than 35,000 radio amateurs gather with their clubs, groups or simply with friends to operate from remote locations.

If your group is hosting a Field Day site, you probably know what to do and are doing it already. If you are not connected to a group that is hosting a Field Day site, you can enjoy a visit to a nearby site. Locate Field Day sites with the ARRL Field Day Site Locator.

You can also operate on your own during Field Day, even if you are limited to the VHF and UHF bands. To learn how, see the ARRL Field Day Web pages.

Field Day goes live on Saturday morning at 11:00 am PDT. It continues for 24 hours, though some Field Day sites will not be in operation for that full period.

Have a great Field Day, and 73 …
