ARRL Field Day June 26 & 27, 2021

Vienna Park in southern Monroe County (320 W Vienna Rd, Temperance, MI 48182) will again be the site of the MCRCA Field Day (FD) activities. FD is the nation-wide event sponsored by the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) to test the mettle of ham operators – are we prepared for a true communications emergency? The manner in which the test is conducted has made FD THE operating event of the ham radio calendar each year for time immemorial. FD is a challenge – a contest if you will, where teams of hams across the country and Canada set up temporary sites and portable stations just to see who can make the most contacts. The MCRCA event will begin Saturday morning around 9:30am when we will gather at the park for set up. The operating event begins at 2:00pm and will run 24 hours until 2:00pm Sunday. The public is invited to come out and operate the radios.
