Field Day is part educational event, part operating event, part public relations event – and ALL about FUN!" The HIARC station will be operational from 2:00 PM Saturday, June 24 to 2:00 PM Sunday, June 25. Information displays will explain how to get an amateur radio license, setup a station and get on the air. We invite you to visit our site, learn about amateur radio and even get some hands on experience operating our "Get on the Air" (GOTA) radio station. Come on out and join us!
