We are preparing for Field Day 2018!!  
Field Day is an annual event sponsored by ARRL that encourages hams around the country to move
into the field, set up an emergency station and operate for 24 hours straight.
This year it is June 23-24, starting at 11am local on Saturday and ending 11am local on Sunday.
Come visit us at the Wahkiakum HS baseball field, anytime day or night.
You can try your hand at talking to hams from all over the country.
Our score we uploaded was 3790 points ... we will know in a few months how we did in the "contest" part.
