NARL FIELD DAY - 2017
June 24 & 25 - Willard & Cross St.
Field Day is the most popular on-the-air operating event in amateur radio. It’s an opportunity for NARL members to hone our emergency communications preparedness skills and have fun. We turn an unprepared site into a fully operational ham radio station for 24 hours on the fourth full weekend in June. Ham clubs all across the US do the same and we follow contest rules to rack up points as a club.
NOTE: Location Changed!!!
The soccer field we used in the past is being reseeded, so the 2017 Field Day has been moved to the other side of the pool complex, to where the Boy Scouts usually pitch their tents for their jamboree. Still Mill Pond Park in Newington, CT, USA. We operate for 24 consecutive hours starting at 2 pm Saturday.
This site is open to the public and we encourage and invite visitors. Stop by to learn about ham radio, get on the air, or help us make contest points!
