The ARRL Field Day is an annual amateur radio exercise, widely sponsored by IARU regions and member organizations, encouraging emergency communications preparedness among amateur radio operators. In the United States, it is typically the largest single emergency preparedness exercise in the country, with over 30,000 operators participating each year. Field Day is always the fourth full weekend of June, beginning at 1800 UTC Saturday and running through 2059 UTC Sunday.
The Bear Bait Radio Club plans and executes a weekend long event participating in Field Day at Mount Sabattis in Long Lake. The Town of Long Lake provides their community facility for our use that weekend, and the public is invited to join us. We typically setup Friday, operate on Saturday into Sunday, and pickup Sunday afternoon. Our typical setup includes multiple radios and antennas covering CW, digital modes, and phone.
Come join us and see amateur radio in use for a simulated emergency. Get to know the members of the Club.
