Field Day

What is Field Day?

It's where ham radio operators set up temporary transmitting stations in public places to demonstrate ham radio's science, skill and service to our communities.  It combines public service, emergency preparedness, community outreach and technical skills all in a single event.  Some dedicated ham operators transmit all day and night!

2017 Field Day a Success!

Non-Hams visit GOTA Station

The 2017 Field Day held at Riverton Middle School on Saturday June 24th through June 25th was a success.  We had 9 stations participating. 20 meters was hopping and even 6 meters opened up for some great contacts.10 meters was a little slow much of the day on Saturday but started to heat up late in the afternoon then really took off Sunday morning.  All in all, W9DUA scored 1,755 points which have been submitted to ARRL for the final ranking.

Noteworthy achievements:
