CQ CQ CQ — TODAY IS FIELD DAY 2017!

Print

ARRL Field Day is the single most popular on-the-air event held annually in the US
and Canada. On the fourth weekend of June of each year, more than 35,000 radio
amateurs gather with their clubs, groups or simply with friends to operate from
remote locations.

Field Day is a picnic, a campout, practice for emergencies, an informal contest and,
most of all, FUN!

It is a time where many aspects of Amateur Radio come together to highlight our
many roles. While some will treat it as a contest, other groups use the opportunity to practice their emergency response capabilities. It is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate Amateur Radio to the organizations that Amateur Radio might serve in an emergency, as well as the general public. For many clubs, ARRL Field Day is one of the highlights of their annual calendar. The contest part is simply to contact as many other stations as possible and to learn to operate our radio gear in abnormal situations and less than optimal conditions.

We use these same skills when we help with events such as marathons and bike-a-thons; fund-raisers such as walka-thons; celebrations such as parades; and exhibits at fairs, malls and museums — these are all large, preplanned, non-emergency activities.

Follow Field Day on Facebook and Twitter! ARRL has created a Field Day event on Facebook, and you can also join the conversation by using the hash tag #ARRLFD. Share your plans, tips and tricks to a successful Field Day!

“People have always had an appetite for science. But the way it’s been taught — where facts are poured into students heads and it’s called science — where’s the joy of discovery there? The science has been eviscerated of the curiosity, the stimulation of your curiosity that we take for granted as children. A scientist is someone who simply never grew up. They’ve maintained their childlike wonder of the unknown.
And we all have that within us.”
