Field Day 2017 - June 23 & 24

On Field Day, the fourth full weekend in June, hams around North America , participate in a simulated emergency test, whereby stations are established under adverse and/or adhoc conditions and a specific set of rules. 

The object of Field Day is to set up an operating  station(s) under emergency conditions and to contact as many other participating amateurs as possible within a 24 hour period. Field Day places enormous pressure on an operator's skills, under comparable conditions to those encountered during a real emergency situation. 

Each year, the Wireless Association of South Hills (WASH Club), actively participates in the ARRL Field Day. It is an ideal event for Club members to practice their skills in erecting antennas, operating a station and logging, all in the wild.
