"CQ CQ CQ this is WA6TOW Calling CQ for Field Day..."

Field Day is one of the biggest events in North American amateur radio. It runs around the clock from start to finish on the fourth weekend of June every year. More than 35,000 radio amateurs gather with their clubs, groups and friends to operate from remote locations.

The ususal High Frequency (HF) amateur bands are 160, 80, 40, 20, 15, and 10 meters. Amateur operations also occur in the VHF and UHF bands. Per the ARRL, the objective of Field Day is: “To work as many stations as possible on any and all amateur bands (excluding the 60, 30, 17, and 12-meter bands) and to learn to operate in abnormal situations in less than optimal conditions. Field Day is open to all amateurs in the areas covered by the ARRL/RAC Field Organizations and countries within IARU Region 2. DX stations residing in other regions may be contacted for credit, but are not eligible to submit entries.”
