Winter Field Day 2020 is approaching!

So, another year has almost drawn to a close, which means January and WFD 2020!

Similar to the Field Day event held in the Summer, Winter Field Day encourages ham radio operators to deploy communications in the field, and in less than ideal weather conditions.  This serves as a rigorous test on the equipment and skills needed to establish communications in any situation, anytime, anywhere.

SARC will be participating in this nationwide annual event outside the Schaumburg Community Recreation Center (same location as SARC in the Park).

We encourage members and non-members alike to come and join us.  If you are interested in Ham radio and want to see how we can deploy our radio communications in the field, this is the perfect time.

Volunteers for setting up the station should arrive at 10.30am CST, ready for testing at 12pm CST, with the official start time being 1pm CST.

The full 24 hour event takes place between 1900 UTC on Saturday Jan 25th and 1900 UTC on Sunday Jan 26th.  For your information, here are the WFD 2020 rules in printable PDF format.
