Return to Outings page

The Winter Field Day will be held at Harry Browne Airport beginning at 2 PM on Saturday January 25, 2020.  This will be a combined ARES and SVARA event and is open to all operators.  Like the summer field day, we will have multiple stations operating from the airport conference room of the terminal building.  We are planning to man the stations for as long as possible depending on the weather.  Those interested in operation a station, please contact Ron Huss, KC8YVF at kc8yvf@arrl.net.

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 2020 Winter Field Day will be held from 1900 UCT 2:00 EST) Saturday January 25, 2020 through 1900 UCT (2:00 EST) Sunday January 26, 2020.

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.
