When: Through June 25, 11 a.m.
The Humboldt Amateur Radio Club will host its annual Field Day event at Woodley Island Marina on June 24th & 25th 2017, from 11:00 AM Saturday - 11:00 AM Sunday. Amateur Radio Operators, also called "hams," will be setting up portable two-way radio stations complete with antenna towers. We'll try and contact as many other stations around the country as we can in 24 hours. The public is invited to visit, and anyone can get on the air and talk to hams in other places during this event. Field Day is ham radio's open house. Every June, more than 40,000 hams throughout North America set up temporary transmitting stations in public places to demonstrate ham radio's science, skill and service to our communities and our nation. It combines public service, emergency preparedness, community outreach, and technical skills all in a single event, and it's fun. Field Day has been held annually since 1933, and remains the most popular event in ham radio. Come out Friday afternoon around 4:00 and watch us set up the antennas!
