Have you made your plans to be at Field Day for June 26 & 27, along with the set-up day on Friday, June 25?

We’re expecting a GREAT Field Day and want YOU to be a part of it!!

A map to the beautiful Carroll farm (4501 Friendship Road, Apex) where it will be held is linked here.

And bring NEW HAMS, INTERESTED PEOPLE and/or INACTIVE HAMS! We’ll have a GOTA (Get On The Air) station where people in these categories can learn or re-learn how to operate a ham station and make contacts across the USA. Then, if they want to do some more hamming, come over to the80/15 meter phone station, and they can make some MORE contacts!

If they want to get an overview on the skills they can practice BEFORE Field Day to make it even more fun, have them attend the RARS meeting on June 8th via Zoom. I will be doing a presentation on Field Day and will give tips on getting ready to make Field Day contacts!

Right now, we have plans for stations on 40 meter phone, 20/10 meter phone, 80/15 meter phone as well as 40 meter CW (code) and 80/20 meter CW.

We’ll also have a digital station and have some satellite contacts made also.

We’re still looking for someone to set-up a VHF/UHF station, and could fit in another station or so if you have some ideas.

Come out to play with radios and help and learn, and well as the enjoy the camaraderie,fellowshipand FOOD with those who share your interest in radios!

So mark your calendar if you haven’t already, and get ready for a post-COVID, TERRIFIC traditional Field Day.

If you have questions, contact me at

To get you even more in the mood for Field Day, take a look at some pictures here of Field Days past, and send some more to me to place here!

We look forward to seeing you there!
