Field Day is hosted by the ARRL each year on the fourth weekend of June. It is an on-the-air event in both the United States and in Canada. Throughout the weekend, hams work on all amateur bands (excluding the 60, 30, 17, and 12-meter bands) to make as many contacts as possible. All of this is done while operating on generators and non-traditional power sources to mimic abnormal situations and emergency communications.
The North Shore Amateur Radio Club participates in Field Day each and every year. Many of our members meet up and spend the weekend camping at our repeater site to try to get as many contacts as possible. We are fortunate enough to be on an extremely tall hill at Purple Woods Conservation Area and can operate close to our repeater so our signals are usually fantastic throughout the day. All our members are welcome to come during Field Day for good conversation and hearty meals. In addition, we always encourage the public to come during Field Day and we often have visits from politicians who are curious about ham radio!
Below are some of the photos of our Field Days throughout the years.
