Calgary Amateur Radio Association
Enjoy Amateur Radio | Serve Our Community
Field Day is ham radio's open house. Every June, more than 40,000 hams throughout North America set up temporary transmitting stations in public places to demonstrate ham radio's science, skill and service to our communities and our nation. It combines public service, emergency preparedness, community outreach, and technical skills all in a single event. Field Day has been an annual event since 1933, and remains the most popular event in ham radio.
We have secured the use of the Military Museums for our Field Day site once again this year. Some set up will take place Friday and continue early Saturday morning. Our Field Day Station VE6NQ will be on the air from noon and operate for 24 hours. Tear down will begin at noon Sunday.
