A little more about Field Day
The Field Day event is designed as an emergency preparedness exercise as well as a public demonstration, but more than anything, it is a fun way to get on the air. Each operator is licensed by the Federal Communications Commission and trained in the art and science of radio communication and basic electronics theory. Events such as Field Day help the Amateur Radio community learn how to best utilize our personal equipment to assist national and local service agencies such as FEMA and the Red Cross by providing reliable communications when the normal infrastructure is offline. This public service capability is often extended to local communities during non-emergency civic events such as parades, marathons and street festivals. Field Day is a great opportunity for us to share the science, service and skill that comes from our hobby in radio.
