ARRL Field Day


A few weeks ago a Ham Radio class was started. I was always interested in it, so now I didn't have an excuse not to participate. We're hoping to get our 'Technician' Class license, but who knows. A well-known ham operator and author of many traning manuals Gordon West wanted to send us textbooks, but we had to inform him that we couldn't receive them for a couple of months.

The American Radio Relay League (ARRL) is the national association for Amateur Radio operators. Every year on the fourth full weekend in June, they host a "Field Day" where operators try and contact as many 'stations' as possible within a 24-hour period. We were hoping to get quite a number of calls from the US. Unfortunately, propogation, just wasn't on our side.
