Field Day 2022





Field Day 2022

ARRL Field Day is the single most popular on-the-air
event held annually in the US and Canada. On the fourth
weekend of June of each year, thousands of radio amateurs
gather with their clubs, groups or simply with friends to oper-
ate from remote locations.

Field Day is a picnic, a campout, practice for emergencies, an
informal contest and, most of all, FUN!

HCRA Field Day is no different than so many other clubs
that look forward to Field Day all year long. We begin with a
complete trailer inventory that was performed on May 21st to
make sure everything necessary for Field Day is in the trailer.
