What is Amateur Radio Field Day?
By: John Agrelius, K7HG
Every year around the end of June, all over the country, local Hams head for the hills with radios, antennas, generators (sometimes even solar cells), tents, sleeping bags and plenty of food and drink (I prefer Coors Light). The object of Field Day is to demonstrate our ability to communicate under adverse conditions using emergency power. We have 24 hours to contact all the other Hams that are doing the same thing. The more contacts you make the more points you get. I've never set any records but I sure enjoy the camping out, the BBQ chicken and the beer. So, now that you know all about Field Day, you can take a look at some of our past events...
