The Fulton Amateur Radio Club, W2CXV, will be on the air in this year’s
ARRL Field Day (Amateur Radio Emergency Exercise). It is the
largest such exercise in the country, with as many as 35,000
ham radio operators participating in the USA, Canada and beyond.
A 100% self-sufficient, portable station will be set up at the
Scriba Volunteer Fire Department on Route 104 in Scriba, NY.
Station setup will begin at 7 am on Saturday, June 22.
On-the-air operations will begin on Saturday, June 22
at 2 pm and continue for 24 hours straight, with the station
being decommissioned thereafter.
Visitors, hams and non-hams alike, will be welcomed. Feel
free to stop by to see us in action, lend a hand with
setup/takedown or maybe even get on the air!

Objective: To contact 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.
