Today is the eve of the most atypical Field Day in the history of the League! Field Day was first done in 1933 and the only pandemic event that can rival what we are going through today was the Spanish Flu in 1917, years before.
The purpose of Field Day is to demonstrate Amateur Radio’s flexibility to both the public and to ourselves.
How are you spending this historic Field Day?
Send your quick stories and pictures to “firstname.lastname@example.org” and we’ll be sharing these through the weekend on our Facebook page.
If you choose to “aggregate” your score as a club – and I hope you do – please sign us as “Boston Amateur Radio Club” as NV1W suggested.
Good Field Day, everyone! “Neither rain, nor snow, nor COVID-19” can stop us!
Field Day is this weekend, June 27–28. As noted in the current issue of The SPARC, there have been some temporary changes to the rules. Most notably, if you’re operating in class D (home stations using commercial power) you can count contacts with other stations in that class for points.
When you submit your logs, please set the “Club” field to “Boston Amateur Radio Club” to ensure that your points are added to the BARC total.
Several club members will be active; listen for us!
We are counting down the days to the 2019 edition of ARRL Field Day! Setup will begin at 8:30 am on Saturday, June 22 at the Bare Cove Fire Museum in Hingham. The plan is to repeat the 3A with VHF setup that has been used the past few years. Logging will be done with N1MM+, and there will be opportunities for phone, CW, and digital ops. Will the stars finally align for a satellite QSO? Will 15 or 10 open? Will there be another 6 meter opening? Find out June 22 & 23!
If you are planning on attending Field Day, please mail Mark Duff, Vice President and Mr Field Day, at the email address given in the “Officers and Staff” section of The SPARC. Let him know which day(s) you’ll be attending and whether you will be staying overnight.
