What is Winter Field Day about?

 

Winter Field Day is sponsored by the Winter Field Day Association with the belief that ham radio operators need to practice portable emergency communications in the winter setting. We all know weather, natural disasters and other emergencies are unpredictable so being prepared is vital to being successful.

 

With that being said, the main objective is to set up an amateur radio field station and successfully make multiple contacts AND have fun. Successful participants are those who can set up their equipment and correctly log the designated exchange during the operational period explained below. Nevertheless, the term contest is used loosely so don’t get too preoccupied on the WFD rules. The idea is to just have fun and talk about weather conditions and so on.

Having said that, MARC will be participating in Winter Field Day this year, and YOU are invited!

On Saturday 1/28 the building will be open to the general public 3pm to 8pm and again Sunday 1/29 from 11am to 1pm. I don't really anticipate anyone stopping by but going to try.
