ARRL Field Day is the single most popular on-the-air event held annually in the US and Canada.
On the fourth FULL 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.
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.
SARA will be participating in Field Day 2019 from Entergy Park located near Carpenter Dam in Hot Springs. If you will be in the Hot Springs area, join us! We’re planning a multi-transmitter setup on HF with opportunities for visitors to get on the air. How many stations we operate will be driven by how many turn out to participate. Operating hours will be Saturday, June 22 from 1 p.m. – 7 p.m. (approximately). Our talk-in frequency is 146.880- (PL 114.8).
The club will have water bottles on hand, but no food will be provided.
