CARC will be hosting Field Day at the Sesquicentennial State Park Retreat Center on June 22-23. Setup will begin at 9 AM with the official start of the event at 2 PM.
This is the largest on-air event in the US and Canada with over 35,000 participants in 2012. CARC welcomes everybody to participate whether you have a license or not. And if you’ve never had a chance to see what “HF” communications can do, you should definitely come to Field Day and see what it’s all about. With a simple wire antenna we are able to contact other stations all over the continent and world.
CARC will operate a 4A or 5A operation which means 4 or 5 active HF stations using generator or battery power. We also plan to have a GOTA Station (a station setup specifically for newly licensed, unlicensed, or inactive licensees) courtesy of the SCHEART system and depending on available equipment, we will also have a 6 meter station.
