The Waltham Amateur Radio Association is partnering with the Montachusett Amateur Radio Association for Field Day, June24 – 25. We will operate on the summit of Mt. Wachusett in Princeton, MA. Setup will begin at 9 AM on Saturday, the 24th. We hope to have enough participation to support 3 HF stations and a VHF station, providing plenty of opportunity for phone, CW, and digital operation from 2 PM Saturday until 2 PM on Sunday. There will also be a “Get on the Air” (GOTA) station for new hams, future hams, and any Technician class operator.
Field Day participation has numerous facets:
· This is a wonderful opportunity to participate first-hand in an emergency communications preparedness event at a national level.
· Field Day provides a ready-made opportunity to introduce family and friends, to what we, as amateu rradio operators, find rewarding in these endeavors.
· It’s a perfect event to introduce young / new folks to the amateur service.
Come for an hour… or come for the whole event. Combine it with a day out on the mountain. Don’t worry about rain in the forecast… it’ll be warm, plus we all drip dry
This is the first big chance, post-COVID, for a radio in-person social event!!
Looking forward to seeing you there.
