Winter Field Day 2020

Winter Field Day takes place this weekend, Saturday-Sunday, January 25-26, 2020. Visit to learn more about Winter Field Day and to read the full rules.

The ACARA will be participating in Winter Field Day on Saturday, indoors, in the Jim Crouse Memorial Radio Station at the Red Cross of Southeastern Ohio, 100 South May Avenue, Athens. Operations will start at 1900 UTC (2pm local) on Saturday and will continue as long as operators are available.

Operations will take place on HF, using SSB and CW. All ACARA members, whether they are experienced operators or newly-licensed hams, are encouraged to participate. And don’t worry–experienced operators will be on-hand to help less experienced operators.

The Red Cross of Southeastern Ohio will use Winter Field Day as an opportunity for the training of new mass-care/feeding volunteers and will provide meals free-of-charge to the ACARA operators between 3pm and 4pm on Saturday.

I hope to see you Saturday!

President, Athens County Amateur Radio Association
