ARRL Field Day Information Packet Now Available
The 2014 Field Day packet is now available. ARRL Field Day is the most popular on-the-air event. It takes place each year in the US and Canada on the fourth weekend in June, when thousands of radio amateurs gather with their clubs, in groups, with friends, or by themselves to operate “in the field” to simulate an emergency communication situation.
In 2013, the ARRL received more than 2500 Field Day entries, representing participation by more than 36,000 radio amateurs who completed in excess of 1.2 million individual contacts on CW, phone, and digital modes.
Field Day 2014 is June 28-29, and it’s not too early to start planning. The Field Day Locator will help you find a Field Day site near you. Rules in Spanish also are available. A Spanish version of the Field Day rules is available. E-mail ARRL Headquarters for more information, or call 860-594-0236.
