This is a Benton County Park and the SSRA are permitted guests. Please drive slowly in the park, as we will be sharing it with the general public.
We will begin set up Saturday at 8:00 AM.
There is plenty of shade, grass and the riverbank for your comfort at this outdoor event. There is also playground equipment for the children.
We are planning to operate 4 individual HF bands simultaneously. Computer logging will be in place at each station making all of your contacts simple to record.
This is your personal invitation to attend the SSRA’s Fourth Annual Field Day Event!
Please, feel free to join us and experience the thrill and excitement of hundreds of amateur radio contacts! No HAM license? No problem! Newly interested ones and seasoned veterans are all welcome to participate. Several licensed amateur radio operators will be present to assist everyone in contacting other stations on the air.
Spend an hour, or spend the night! Bring a lawn chair, umbrellas, pillow/cot or tent, and plan on experiencing your first 100+ contact day on the amateur bands! We will be operating 24 hours, straight through the night. Ample shade, restrooms, and parking is available. A complimentary lunch with beverages will be served on Saturday between 1 and 2 PM. We will be serving BBQ'ed Hamburgers & Beef Hot Dogs, Chips and drinks, while pizza is planned for dinner. We would sure enjoy seeing you there.
