Field Day is an opportunity for us to test our station building and operating skills under less than ideal conditions. It is part emergency simulation (setting up a temporary station operating under battery or generator power) and part contest (contacting as many stations as possible on various bands and using a variety of modes). It is always fun and a great time of working together to do something that may prepare us for a future need in a time of disaster.

Field Day is part educational event, part operating event, part public relations event -- and ALL about FUN!
