Field Day 2024 is June 22-23rd

There will be no SEMNARC meeting for June. Instead, we will get together for Field Day! The Field Day site will be at 14465 County Rd 2 Spring Valley and all are welcome.

The ARRL Field Day 2024 is coming up on June 22-23rd. Our group is again planning to participate this year by operating a club station using the callsign W0VGW. Field Day is a national annual event where groups across the US and Canada set up temporary portable amateur radio equipment and antennas operating on emergency power and operate for 24 hrs communicating with each other. It is a good exercise in emergency preparedness as well as a fun social event and an opportunity to learn new things. Operations begin at 1pm Saturday and continue until 1 pm Sunday. The SEMNARC Field Day site will be open for the public to visit from 1-6 pm Saturday and 9am-1pm on Sunday. Club members are welcome to bring family and friends anytime. This is SEMNARC’s largest and most popular event of the year, members are encouraged to contribute as much time as possible to participate and make this year another success. Details and updates to Field Day plans will be posted on the SEMNARC Facebook group page. See you at Field Day!

We will monitor the Wykoff 147.015 PL 110.9 / Racine 444.250 PL136.5 (linked) repeaters during Field Day weekend for talk-ins.
