Members of the River City Amateur Radio Communications Society will participate in the Annual ARRL Field Day Exercise beginning at 11:00 am on Saturday June 23rd and ending at 11:00 am Sunday June 24th.

This annual event demonstrates volunteer emergency communications skills. The public is encouraged to drop in, and a special “Get On The Air” station will allow all who visit to talk with other radio amateurs across the country. We encourage youth to take the controls and make a live radio contact.

Admission is free at the historic Dry Creek Ranch, 6852 Dry Creek Road, Rio Linda, CA 95673.  More information on our Field Day web page.
