It’s Field Day 2017!



The Decatur Amateur Radio Club will participate in its 64th consecutive Field Day contest on Saturday and Sunday, June 24th and 25th. We have once again reserved the picnic shelter behind the main stage at Point Mallard Park in Decatur. We will be monitoring the 147.00 repeater so we can answer questions or give directions.

We will begin the setup between 8:00 and 9:00 on Saturday morning and begin radio operations at 1:00. For the following 24 hours we will attempt to contact as many stations as possible using up to 4 radio stations. Then on Sunday afternoon we will take everything apart and celebrate a fun outing.

Come out and help us, visit with us, or even use one of the radios for a short while. We’d love the company!

See you at Field Day!!
