Field Day is always the fourth full weekend of June, beginning at 1800 UTC (2:00 P.M.) Saturday and running through 2059 UTC (4:59 P.M.) Sunday. Field Day 2017 is June 24-25.

We are looking for volunteers to help out with Field Day, June 24, 9:00 A.M.  We will be meeting at Floyd Bennett Field to start setting up antennas and communications equipment. Please send us an email if you can help us out.

We also need operators If you would like to operate, please send us an email with the time you would like to sit in the Captain’s Chair. If you like, you can bring your own keyers, headphones, radio.

This is a great opportunity for your kids, introducing them to the world of Amateur Radio by letting them contact other Hams around the world. They do not have to be licensed as long as a Licensed Operator for the Band they are on is Present.
