ARRL Field Day 2023 CARA is joining OBARC again for the ARRL Field Day 2023.

Our past joint ventures have been great for both clubs, and the ARRL Field Day this year continues that tradition!

The public is invited to join us at the Hernando Point Camground on the north side of Arkabutla lake on Saturday, June 24th and Sunday, June 25th.

Both clubs will be located in a block of camping sites on the loop furthest east from the campground entrance.

The pin on the directions link below shows the approximate location of the loop inside the campground.

For directions to the campground, click here, and enter your starting address.

More information can be found on the OBARC website on their ARRL Field Day 2023 page.
Updated Net Control Schedule Thanks to Jim Sanders, KE5RHM, the continuation of the Net Control Schedule was made through 12/25/2023.

While Jim sent the updated list to the webmaster on 11/9/2022, it has taken a bit to get it live on the website.

However, the updated list as of 11/14/2022 is now on the Net Control Schedule page!

NOTE: The first change from the previous schedule does not happen until 12/12/2022 when Andy take the place of the previous person scheduled. Changes continue from there forward.
