Objective - To work as many stations as possible on any and all amateur bands (excluding the 60, 30, 17, and 12-meter bands) and to learn to operate in abnormal situations in less than optimal conditions. Field Day is open to all amateurs in the areas covered by the ARRL/RAC Field Organizations and countries within IARU Region 2. DX stations residing in other regions may be contacted for credit, but are not eligible to submit entries.
Field Day is the single most popular on-the-air event held annually in the US and Canada. On the fourth weekend of June of each year, more than 35,000 radio amateurs gather with their clubs, groups or simply with friends to operate from remote locations.

Just a few words about Field Day. Remember to mark anything you bring with your name/callsign. This includes your camp chair or cooler or any radio type gear. There is always something left behind so if we know who it belongs to we can get it back to you. Bring anything you need for your own creature comforts like beverages, an extra coat, lawn chair or insect repellent. This is a public area so open alcoholic beverages will not be permitted.
Lastly, the goal is to have a great time, make lots of contacts and make new friends. Welcome to the new hams who have recently completed the course and are in the midst of getting their callsigns.
The weekend after Field Day is the Radio Amateurs of Canada, Canada Day Contest.
