ARRL SUMMER FIELD DAY
The date is June 22-23, 2024
It begins at 18:00 UTC Saturday and runs through 20:59 UTC Sunday
Yes, it’s never too early to plan. The club always participates in the yearly summer event. As usual, it will begin on a Saturday afternoon, and end on Sunday afternoon. For the last few years, the weather has been very cooperative for the Grayson County Amateur Radio Club on Summer Field Day.
The GCARC Summer Field Day in 2024 will be held at the Eisenhower Birthplace for the 2nd year in the row. Details of the GCARC upcoming Field Day and flyer will be posted right here.
ARRL Field Day on the fourth full weekend of June every year is the opportunity for thousands of amateur radio enthusiasts throughout the U.S. and Canada to set up temporary communications stations and contact like-minded people. Licensed radio operators (often called “Hams”) spend the weekend practicing community outreach, emergency preparedness, and technical skills. It’s basically radio heaven.
A contest is held each year with individuals, clubs, and teams trying to contact as many stations as possible over 24 hours. Field Day will take place on June 22 and June 23 with over 35,000 people expected to take part. More details regarding the 2024 GCARC Field Day will appear on this webpage, the club newsletter and at the May and June monthly meetings.
