Field Day!

Field Day

AG6RF has never really participated in a Ham Radio Field Day. Never officially. But this weekend I just might. The local Oakland amateur radio club will be setting up and operating a field station (battery powered) at the Sequoia horse arena up in the Oakland hills, near the Chabot Space and Science Museum.

Field Day actually runs from Saturday 11am Pacific Time thru Sunday 2pm. Amateur radio operators all over the country are encouraged to operate off the grid and make as many contacts with other hams as they can. It’s actually a contest, with complex rules for making contacts and garnering points. I never join contests, but I do like to make contacts. So Saturday I just might take the van, radio, and a few antennas out to Pt Reyes for a few hours, and then join the Oakland club at Sequoia on Sunday.

There’s more information about Field  Day on the ARRL website.
