WA0DE is on the air for Field Day 2014!
ARRL Field Day 2014
The Amateur Radio Relay League Field Day is an annual contest designed to test amateur radio operators capabilities in less-than-ideal conditions. Participants in IARU Region 2 compete to earn the most points by accomplishing a multitude of tasks in up to a 48-hour period of time; 24 hours of which can be spent making contacts over the radio waves.
Each individual or team can earn points by making contacts on the radio and promoting amateur radio in their local communities, as well as meeting certain setup and configuration criteria. Setup is allowed to begin up to 24-hours before the operating period begins (Noon on June 28th to Noon on June 29th, 2014; 18:00-18:00 UTC), but the real fun begins at 18:00 UTC when on-the-air contesting begins!
Visitors are welcome, so come on by and see what it’s all about! You can even get on the air yourself, no license required, with our “Get On The Air” station. Who knows? You might even discover a new hobby! Most of all, have some fun with the local community:
