ARRL Field Day

It's that time of the year when Hams (Amateur Radio Operators) get on the air.


Yes, every year during the 3rd Weekend (Sat and Sunday) in June, the big event occurs.

This year it is June 23-24.

So What is Field day? and why should I care? 

You are probably asking those questions and more if you are not  a Ham.

Today's link will explain --

And even though you are probably not a Ham, if you check out a Field Day site near you and watch the radio operations in person --

in fact, if you go to a Field day near you, you can get on the air yourself because most locations will have a GOTA (Get on the Air Station).

Try it out.  You might just get hooked on this fun hobby.

So with that by way of introduction
