Field Day

ARRL Field Day 2018Going back several years, Seattle ACS and Puget Sound Repeater Group (PSRG) have co-hosted an station for ARRL Field Day. ARRL Field Day is the most popular amateur radio event held annually in the US and Canada. On the fourth weekend of June, more than 35,000 radio amateurs gather with their clubs, groups or simply with friends to operate from remote locations. Operations include HF SSB phone and CW; VHF-UHF; digital; a GOTA station (Get On The Air) to allow non-licensed visitors to transmit.

ACS and Puget Sound Repeater Group will again be hosting a joint Field Day Event at South Seattle College. We will on the field at the south end of the campus, adjacent to Olympic Hall. We are also inviting members of Western Washington DX Club, Western Washington Medical Services Team, and West Seattle Amateur Radio Cloud to join us this year.

A few things to remember:

  • Check the weather and bring appropriate clothes, outerwear, hats, shoes, etc. It will get quite cool at night.
  • If you have safety vests and hard hats, please bring them.
  • Bring a flashlight if you will be there overnight.
  • You may want to bring a folding chair, but there will be some with the trailers.
