Field Day

Overview

Every year on the 4th weekend in June amateur radio operators head to the great outdoors for the premiere Amateur Radio Relay League (ARRL) operating event – Field Day.  For a 24-hour period they work in simulated emergency conditions to contact as many other amateur radio stations as possible.   There are at least two primary goals for Field Day:

Here at NFARL we see Field Day as

"Field Day is a contest where you keep score and also exhibit ham radio
'emergency preparedness' to the general public"
