Field Day is not just for summertime anymore. Winter Field Day, sponsored by the Winter Field Day Association (WFDA), takes place the last full weekend of January each year. The annual event’s stated purpose is to encourage emergency operating preparedness in the winter, but it’s also an excuse to get out of the house and enjoy the great outdoors. According to the WFDA, getting ready for emergency communication in a winter environment is just as important as the preparations and practice that take place each June during ARRL Field Day.
SARA will be participating in Winter Field Day 2022 from Lake Ouachita State Park, near Mountain Pine, Arkansas. If you will be in the greater Hot Springs area, join us! We do not have a specific location in the park nailed down, so give us a shout on the radio when you arrive. Operating hours will be from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. (approximately). Our talk-in frequency is 146.880- (PL 114.8).
In addition to Field Day, we will be doing a Parks on the Air activation from around 10 or 11am until Field Day begins at 1pm.
