ARRL Field DAY 2024

Field Day Chairman

In June each year as part of the ARRL Field Day, PCARS establishes temporary transmitting stations in a local park (Freedom Township Park) to showcase the science, expertise, and dedication of ham radio to our local communities and country. This event seamlessly integrates public service, emergency readiness, community engagement, and technical proficiency.

Note that all of the rules governing ARRL Field Day can be found on the ARRL website.

Our Field Day in 2024 will once again take place at Freedom Township Park on June 22-23
(see map at right).
