Field Day

2018 ARRL Field Day is June 23-24

This year, many groups and participants may choose to combine 2018 Field Day with our yearlong operating event - 2018 ARRL International Grid Chase (IGC) - working stations in as many grid squares as possible and uploading log data to ARRL's Logbook of The World (LoTW).

For 2018 Field Day and the IGC, the standard event exchange of Field Day Class and Section is still what is sent over the air.  After Field Day is where your logs can count for the IGC, but you must be sure when uploading your Field Day logs to LoTW that your TQSL Station Location includes your Grid Square - then LoTW takes care of the rest.  Check out the Monthly ongoing results on the IGC Leaderboard.

Field Day is ham radio's open house. Every June, more than 40,000 hams throughout North America set up temporary transmitting stations in public places to demonstrate ham radio's science, skill and service to our communities and our nation. It combines public service, emergency preparedness, community outreach, and technical skills all in a single event. Field Day has been an annual event since 1933, and remains the most popular event in ham radio.
