Field Day

The Hernando County Amateur Radio Association (HCARA) will hold its annual Field Day exercise Saturday & Sunday, June 22 & 23, 2019.
Our Field Day site is located at the Little Rock Cannery, 15487 Citrus Way, Brooksville, FL 34614, north of Brooksville on 98 at Citrus Way.
Field Day is a communications exercise intended to demonstrate the participant’s ability to set up and establish communications under emergency conditions and operating from a location not normally used for communications, including the installation of antennas, radios and emergency power.
The Field Day operations commence at 2 PM Saturday and runs continuously for 24 hours ending Sunday at 2PM. The general public is invited to observe our operations.
We would like to invite you to visit our site on June 22 or 23 and see our efforts in training and support for emergency communications.
We look forward to seeing you.

PLEASE NOTE:  All who are developing our MESH Broadband Ham Network . . .

We have switched over to version 3.0 of the software that converts Linksys routers to a MESH Ham Radio Broadband Network. This is not compatible with earlier versions of the software! The upgrade is easy. If you need help, contact anyone in the club involved with the Mesh Network: Bob, W1LBV; Tim, WB0YSX;  or anyone else.
