|SVARA Field Day 2023
June 24-25 @ Kochville Township Park
The Amateur Radio Field Day is a time where Radio operators from all over North America (and some other countries too) set up portable radio stations and run them on emergency power. Then they try to talk to as many other radio stations as possible.
Our Co-Chairs for this years event are Dave W8DW, Ron KC8YVF, Mike KD8MMH and Tom N8EUI. For more information, contact Ron at email@example.com
SVARA Field Day 2023
The weekend June 24 and 25 is ARRL Field Day. SVARA will be participating in field day again this year. We will be at Elmer Lang Park in Kochville Township, this is off Mackinaw road behind the fire station about a half mile north of Tittabawassee Road.
All are encouraged to come and participate. Station captains will be looking for loggers as well as operators. This is a fun event and a good time to get your feet wet operating HF. If you know someone that isnít licensed and would like to give it a try please bring them out, no age limit. If you are a technician class licensee you can give HF a try. You can come out and see SSB, CW and Digital stations in action.
We will be starting setup about 10:00 AM Saturday morning and any help is welcome. Setup can give you a chance to learn about setting up a HF station and maybe give you some ideas about antennas that you can use on you own station.
Field Day operations officially start at 2:00 PM Saturday and run till 2:00 PM on Sunday. Bring your tent and stay if you would like. This is a great time to get those radio question answered or just have a nice eyeball QSO.
Sunday around Noon we will be taking down antennas and packing up gear and would appreciate any help with that if you can come out on Sunday.
I hope to see you all this weekend.
Station captains we will meet at the site on
Saturday morning at 9:30 AM and pick station placement. If there is
anything you need call me and Iíll see if I can help you out.
I hope to see everyone and hope that we all
have a great Field Day.
Captains (as of 6/24/23)
