The History of the ARRL Field Day

 

Amateur Radio operators have been transmitting from “the field” ever since radio has been around. Since 1933, the American Radio Relay League – the National Association for Amateur Radio – has formalized this activity for one weekend each June, called Field Day. During Field Day, over 35,000 “hams” across the United States, Canada, and many other countries take their radio gear out of their homes and set up temporary stations almost anywhere imaginable: public parks, beaches, mountaintops, baseball diamonds, atop parking garages, and yes, even in fields. They do so as part of a local club, with just a friend or two or their family, or individually. In 2011, over 1.4 million radio contacts were made between Amateur Radio operators during the Field Day weekend.

 


 

For more information on the CCARC Field Day, or to join the planning Committee, contact the W7AIA Field Day planning coordinator Trevor/KG7VIP at FieldDay@w7aia.org

 

The Field Day Planning committee meets monthly to prepare for the event. The meetings are normally on second Saturday of the month (January thru June). For video recordings of the 2020 Field Day Planning Meetings, click HERE.

 


 

 

Field Day 2020 – June 27-28, 2020


The planning for Field Day this year is especially challenging during this COVID-19 Pandemic period to comply with "Social Distancing" and to support the Governor's "Stay Home, Stay Safe" conditions. The Field Day commmittee is exploring the concept of members operating the club radios remotely that are located in a central location (minimally manned) via the internet from their home QTH .  When the technology is validated, the operating process will be made available to the membership for training. It is planned to present it to the membership at the June 12th General Meeting.
