Topic: Field Day Preparation
Please join us as we discuss the club’s plans for this year’s Field Day, which is being held on June 28 – 29, 2014.
Oakville ARC took second place in Canada in the 3a category and 23rd overall in 3a in last summer’s Field Day.
Several club members have been discussing the possibility of adopting a slightly different format this year that would accommodate both serious contesters and those looking to operate in a more casual manner.
“Field Day is part educational event, part operating event, part public relations event – and ALL about FUN!”
“Field Day is the most popular on-the-air event held annually in the US and Canada. On the fourth weekend of June, more than 35,000 radio amateurs gather with their clubs, groups or simply with friends to operate from remote locations.” – ARRL
