PIO and Field Day

Score points in Field Day with PR

ARRL Field Day is the largest on-air event in North America and a natural for getting media attention. 

Field Day encompasses all aspects of Amateur Radio: service to the community, emergency preparedness, and technical skill. As a PIO, this is one of the biggest opportunites to showcase what Amateur Radio does for your community. Take full advantage of this opportuniy!

ARRL updates the Field Day packet every year. The packet includes a wealth of information on getting the word out about your group's effort, including sample press releases, invitations to elected officials, and a PIO "to-do" list. These tools work year-round, not just during Field Day. Your success as a PIO will improve dramatically if you follow the steps outlined in the Field Day PR Kit. And during Field Day itself, your PR efforts berfore, during and after Field Day will give your club up to 500 extra points!
