What is Field Day???

Field Day is where hams go to play. The last full weekend of June is Field Day. Your local club (the TMRA included!!!) typically hosts a full weekend of amateur radio-related events at a local site. There are no two ways about it, Field Day is FUN. Hams bring out their gear and get on the air. If you can't normally find someone to talk to on the air, you WILL find someone to talk to on Field Day. Hams congregate together on Field Day at your local clubs Field Day site and get on the air. At some of the larger Field Day gatherings there will be hams on almost every single HF band, as well as six and two meters, 440Mhz, and even higher. Phone(voice)/digital/CW, it's all there. Although it's called Field Day, this event spans the entire weekend. At the core of Field Day is the ARRL Field Day Contest. This event starts at 1800 UTC time on Saturday (2PM Toledo, OH local time) and ends as 2059 UTC time on Sunday (4:59PM Toledo, OH local time). That's right, this event goes on for more than 24 hours straight. But if contesting is not your thing, there are typically other events going on simultaneously. Lots of hams will be there to talk to! If your new to the hobby, Field Day is one event not to miss!!!
