Join Field Day at SPARC, June 22-23

The St. Petersburg Amateur Radio Club will hold its annual ARRL Field Day 2024 operating event from Saturday, June 22, 2024, through Sunday, June 23, 2024. The Field Day activities will commence at 14:00 local time on 6/22 and end at 16:59 local time on 6/23.
Field Day is an important and fun annual event for the Amateur Radio Community. The American Radio Relay League (ARRL) has been holding it annually every June since 1933. This will be the ARRL’s 91st Annual Field Day event.
Field Day is a 24-hour event that allows amateur radio operators to test their communication skills in simulated emergency situations. Originally, this was done without the luxuries of typical infrastructure (e.g., AC electricity). Some clubs and/or participants would actually participate in this activity in parks and campgrounds, where they would have to rely strictly on the bare minimum to power communication equipment. Some participants slept in tents during this event when they were not working the airwaves.
All amateurs, regardless of current license class and their families and friends, are invited to participate. Multiple modes will be used, like CW, SSB, and digital modes, to name a few. It is also a time to promote fellowship amongst the worldwide Amateur Radio Community.
All are invited to attend and encouraged to do so. The event will be held at our club station at:

Sign-up on SLACK or contact a SPARC officer. We look forward to seeing you there.
