On Wednesday, June 13th 2018, the Delaware Valley Radio Association monthly meeting will feature a presentation on “Field Day” by Cliff Green, WA2TMF. Cliff will discuss the history of Field Day and the DVRA’s plans for operation from Richard J. Coffee Mercer County Park in West Windsor on the weekend of June 23-24.
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.
