Past events - Field Day 2016

2014 field day.

The American Radio Relay League (ARRL) has a wealth of information for prospective licensees and those interested in upgrading to a higher classification.

We have an on-going event on Wednesday evenings at 1900-1930hrs which is our NARA Net on those frequencies you see on the bottom of every page. This is where amateurs can join a net and talk about radio and other topics.

Here is the nara net script for net control.

This is our past events page.

Here we have some images of our organization members participating in local events involving amateur radio.
