Field Day on Mora Hill in Rancho San Antonio Open Space Preserve, June 24-26
WVARA FD Coordinator: Jim Peterson, K6EI
WHAT: Field Day is a great opportunity to get outdoors, gain experience assembling equipment in the rough, and operate a station under challenging conditions. This year we will operate QRP (5 watts max) in the 9A Battery category with phone, CW, and digital HF stations as well as satellite ground station, a Get-On-the-Air station for rusty hams, and a VHF/UHF station. To see details of our site from 2019, refer to: https://www.arrl.org/soapbox/view/10118
WHEN: We will be setting up beginning early on Friday morning, June 24. Field Day operations officially begin Saturday at 11am and continue until 11am Sunday. Our goal is to keep all of the HF stations in operation the full 24 hours. Tear-down and packing activities will probably last from 11am until about 2pm Sunday afternoon.
