CARC 2015 Field DAY

CARC's Field Day 2015 is almost here!

When:Field Day is always the fourth full weekend of June, beginning at 1800 UTC Saturday and running through 2059 UTC Sunday. Field Day 2014 will be held June 28-29, 2014. The event starts on noon on Saturday and runs until noon on Sunday.

Where: | Google Map This year is a "Club Event" a very relaxed social event for our members and guests not your normal public Field Day.

Who: Any and all interested CARC members and their guests! Hams or not. No licenses required.

What: Environment appropriate clothing, beverages and accessories. Folks should feel free to bring whatever amateur radio equipment they want to show off, test, or use during the weekend. If you participate in a niche subset of amateur radio, there are always people around who would like to learn about it.

Also of note: CARC typically runs a VE session. This year there will not be a VE session during Field Day but we do have one scheduled in mid July. Please see the VE session page for details. However if you are planning on testing soon please visit us this weekend. We will be more than happy to introduce you to amateur radio and maybe even get you on the air making your first contacts!

Food: As is our tradition, the club will be providing burgers and dogs for Saturday evening. Time to be determined by conditions. Bring your own chips, deserts, salads, etc to share with the rest and enjoy!. All other meals during the event are 'Bring your own'.

Camping: There is some room for folks wanting to set up a tent or small shelter. Be aware that bathroom facilities are NOT available on premise - we will be depending on the facilities at the Robertson Rd. boat ramp about .25 mi south of the site.
