ARRL Field Day 2016

Calling CQ CQ CQ...
 Mark your calendars for the
ARRL Field Day 2016!

Every year the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) holds a field day that is best described as; part educational event, part operating event, part public relations event, and most importantly ALL amateur radio fun! ARRL Field Day is one of the most popular amateur radio events held on the fourth weekend in June and draws around 35,000 amateur radio operators from clubs, groups, or simply with friends to operate from remote locations nationwide. This also is a testing and evaluating event for the readiness of ham radio operators to serve their local communities or the communities of others in emergencies or natural disasters. 

The Sumner County Amateur Radio Association and the Sumner County Amateur Radio Emergency Service will host a Field Day with multiple amateur radio portable stations to work every amateur frequency band and operating mode available to demonstrate the effectiveness and the value of amateur radio including Morse Code. This event is open to the public including any current and/or aspiring amateur radio licensee of ANY age. If this sounds intriguing please visit the "Special Events" for more information on this upcoming event in JUNE!!!!!!
