Field Day is ham radio's open house! Every June, more than 40,000 hams throughout North America set up temporary transmitting stations in public places to demonstrate ham radio's science, skill and service to our communities and our nation. It combines public service, emergency preparedness, community outreach, and technical skills all in a single event. Members of the public are welcome to come and learn about Ham Radio with voice, digital, morse/cw, and mobile stations being operated, and even try it out as guest radio operators under expert guidance at our "Get On The Air" station during this free event!
