2019 ARRL Join the BARC Field in June
ARRL Field Day is the most popular on-the-air event held annually in
Canada and the US. On the fourth weekend of June, more than 35,000
radio amateurs gather with their clubs, groups or simply with friends
to operate from remote locations.
This year Field Day will be June 22 and 23. We will be operating on Sunday the 23.
The general public is very welcome to come and see what we do.
The Burlington Amateur Radio Club will be participating in
ARRL Field Day 2019 at:
City View Park, on Kerns Rd. just south of Dundas St.
Getting Ready for Field Day
This event is open to all BARC members, licensed amateurs or if you're interested
in getting your licence and if you have any experience or not. In fact, it is the best
way to get started using HF, even if you just come out to visit or log contacts for the operators.
Mike will provide all the information and procedures required to make and log contacts.
ARRL Field Day: To work as many stations as possible on any and all amateur bands and
to learn to operate in abnormal situations in less than optimal conditions. Field Day is open
to all amateurs in the areas covered by the ARRL/RAC Field Organizations and countries
within IARU Region 2. DX stations residing in other regions may be contacted for credit,
but are not eligible to submit entries.
