Winter Field Day 2015

PDF

wfd 2007Winter Field day is approaching January 24th, 2015. This year TARS will hold it at Wesselman’s Park. Set up about 9:00 AM and the contest starts at 11:00 AM .
Chris KE9YK will have his almost famous bean soup and cornbread at Noon. Anyone wanting to bring anything to share is welcome too.  We will have a fire going to keep warm and generally have several members set up HF and you are welcome to operate.

The 2015 Winter Field Day will be held from 1700 UTC (12:00 noon EST) Saturday January 24, 2015 through 1700 UTC (12:00 noon EST) Sunday January 25, 2015. The object of the event is familiar to most Amateur Radio operators: set up emergency-style communications and make as many contacts as possible during the 24 hour period. The rules encourage as many contacts on as many bands and modes as possible, because during a real emergency, the most important factor is the ability to communicate, regardless of band, mode or distance.

The official rules can be found at the SPAR web site. The event is open to all amateurs, although we encourage everyone to join in the discussions and other activities sponsored by SPAR.
