Field Day is our annual exercise and public exhibition of emergency communications response capabilities.
Amateur radio organizations throughout North America participate in this exercise each June.
We encourage general public & licensed amateurs to come & get on the air. Technician class licensees can also operate HF as General & Extra Class control operators will be on site.
Our Field Day site is on the grounds immediately next to the Dry Creek Ranch House. Directions: Go 0.6 miles north of the intersection of Elkhorn Blvd and Dry Creek Road. Enter the 2016 Field Day Site through the main entrance on the east side of Dry Creek Road. Proceed on the driveway past the Ranch House and turn right behind the barn to the parking area. To avoid damage to the irrigation system, DO NOT DRIVE DIRECTLY ACROSS THE FIELD TO THE FIELD DAY SITE. Talk-in on our N6NA 145.25 MHz repeater.
SET UP: We will set up at 7:00 am sharp on Saturday June 25th. Club members should wear their ID badge. Check in with Field Day Captain Andy W6AWS for task assignments.
