June 26, 2021 – Field Day (day 1)

Meeting Date: 
Saturday, June 26, 2021 - 07:00

ARRL Field Day is a great opportunity for all Clark County ARES/RACES members to get outdoors and practice operating under “field” conditions, work closely with members from other teams, greet public officials and the general public, and to have fun.

Participation in Field Day is part of the Clark County ARES/RACES Annual Training Plan (which was submitted to the state Emergency Management Division to obtain our group mission number).  Normally for Field Day, we would encourage members to get outdoors and practice operating under “field” conditions, work closely with members from other teams, greet public officials and the general public, and to have fun.  Like 2020, we need to make adjustments for the pandemic.

The ARRL has extended the Temporary Rule Waiver from 2020 allowing individual stations to aggregate their results into a combined Clark County ARES/RACES score.  Technician Class licensees can help out my making and logging VHF and UHF simplex contacts.  So, please participate in Field Day 2021 as an individual, or perhaps a very small group of individuals (while practicing “social distancing”).  If you have not done Field Day before, are apprehensive about entering, or have not participated in Field Day as a single operator station, please contact your Team Leader or the EC for help.
