The June 14th meeting of the Delaware Valley Radio Association will have a single objective: to plan the club's participation in the annual ARRL Field Day exercise. The DVRA has participated in this fun and exciting event for many, many years. Come on out and volunteer to be a part of our group this year. Field Day is always held on the last full weekend in June. This year, it's Saturday to Sunday June 24-25. As per usual, we'll be setting up in the Mercer County Park. Details will follow...
According to the ARRL's website:
Field Day is ham radio's open house. Every June, more than 40,000 hams throughout North America set up temporary transmitting stations in public places to demonstrate ham radio's science, skill and service to our communities and our nation. It combines public service, emergency preparedness, community outreach, and technical skills all in a single event. Field Day has been an annual event since 1933, and remains the most popular event in ham radio.
All are welcome to attend our meetings. A combined Directors/Business Meeting will be held from 6:30 to 7:30 PM, followed by a social/refreshment period from 7:30 to 8:00 PM, a five minute announcement of this month’s upcoming activity dates, and the featured talk at 8:05 PM. All will be held at Our Lady of Good Counsel Church on Lower Ferry Road, West Trenton. Feel free to join for all or part of the meeting.
