June 22 - 23 2019
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.
