ARRL Field Day Web Content Updated for 2019

03/13/2019

ARRL Field Day 2019 is June 22 – 23 (always the fourth full weekend in June). The Field Day website already includes updated content for 2019, and more is planned. A new Field Day Facebook page now is open too. While there are no significant changes in web page and the FD rules from prior years, some text has been updated and clarified. 

With appropriate software versions and proper setup, FT8 now can accommodate the Field Day exchange. Field Day stations should ensure that the software they’re using (e.g. WSJT-X, MSHV) can support the Field Day exchange and has been configured to do so.

Instituted in 1933 to demonstrate Amateur Radio’s emergency preparedness capabilities while away from an established station, Field Day remains the most popular event in ham radio, with more than 40,000 operators taking part last summer.

Field Day 2019 results will appear in the December issue of QST
