NOTE: antanna setup area will be next to the west side of the airport terminal building.  Will can utilize the fence post for attaching our antenna lines. Operators please keep this in mind when determining your best solution for your antenna setup.

Setup will begin at 10 AM

The 2019 Winter Field Day will be held from 1900 UCT 2:00 EST) Saturday January 26, 2019 through 1900 UCT (2:00 EST) Sunday January 27, 2019.

The object of the event is familiar to most Amateur Radio operators: set up emergency-style communications and make as many contacts as possible during the 24 hour period. The rules encourage as many contacts on as many bands and modes as possible, because during a real emergency, the most important factor is the ability to communicate, regardless of band, mode, distance or weather.

The official rules can be found at Winter Field Day web site and the event is open to all amateurs.
