Field Day 2019

Field Day 2019

The Rochester Amateur Radio Club hosted a Field Day event at Schaeffer Academy June 22-23rd, open to the public from Noon to 9PM on Saturday, and from 9AM to Noon Sunday.

The RARC amassed 7900 points, taking the highest score in the state and the 17th highest score for the 3A class (out of 309 other 3A clubs)!

The 2019 field day was a great success! If you have pictures, please send them to AA0CN/Collin. Thanks to everyone who helped out and/or operated this year!

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!
