SCARC Field Day Event
On June 24 and 25th the Somerset County Amateur Radio Club will be participating in the 2023 ARRL Field Day operations featuring demonstrations of the science, skills, and service that is amateur radio. Amateur radio operators across North America will participate in field day events to activate equipment and technologies they use daily.
The ARRL 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 45,000 radio amateurs gather with their clubs, groups, or simply with friends to operate from remote locations. It is a time when Amateur Radio operators use this opportunity to practice their emergency response capabilities and it is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate Amateur Radio to the public and organizations they might serve in an emergency.
Interested in Amateur Radio? Please come visit us on June 24 starting at 2:00 pm through the 25th until 2:00 pm. We will be operating at 1302 Ridge Road in Hooversville PA. We welcome already licensed Amateurs to come operate with us during the event. New Hams wanting some experience, this is a great opportunity and are strongly encouraged to attend.
Bring a comfortable camping chair and get on the air with us. If you are new to the hobby or interested in getting into Amateur Radio, this is a great opportunity for you. You will be able to operate with the club’s radio equipment and get some great experience. If you have questions, bring them along. Our club members are always willing to answer any questions you may have. We look forward to seeing you at next year’s event.
