IT'S FIELD DAY!

OH-KY-IN ARS and Field Day

Sponsored by the ARRL, Field Day is an operating event that tests amateurs ability to communicate under less than ideal conditions.

Field Day occurs during the 4th full weekend in June every year, and OH-KY-IN participates each year.   During the weekend, amateur radio operators try to contact as many other Field Day stations as possible.   With more than 36,000 Amateur Radio operators across the country participating every year, there are many stations available to contact.

For 2014, Field Day starts at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 28th, and wraps up at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday the 29th.   Stations are allowed by the rules to begin setting up for Field Day just 24 hours in advance, so for us, that will be 2:00 p.m. on Friday the 27th.

While this event is a serious test of skill, it's a contest for fun, too.   Typically, we have a pleasant picnic for members and their families, topped by a "Midnight Steak Fry" on Saturday night.  It promises to be a lot of fun... and perhaps thrilling (HINT: we're breaking in a new "chef" this year).

OH-KY-IN holds it's Field Day at Mitchell Memorial Forest in Cleves, Ohio, near I-74 and Rt. 128.   We invite you to join us to experience Amateur Radio, enjoy the food, the fellowship and the fun!
