2023 ARRL Field Day

Submitted by AK2X on Wed, 04/26/2023 - 19:16

Field Day is ham radio's open house. Every June, more than 40,000 hams throughout North America set up temporary transmitting stations in public places to demonstrate ham radio's science, skill and service to our communities and our nation. It combines public service, emergency preparedness, community outreach, and technical skills all in a single event. Field Day has been an annual event since 1933, and remains the most popular event in ham radio.

Club members who want to sign up for an operating time slot should contact Judy Lamay.

NY QSO Party

Submitted by AK2X on Thu, 09/29/2016 - 10:16

The New York QSO Party will be held on Saturday, October 15, 2016. The event starts at 1400 UTC (2 pm EDT) and runs for 12 hours. Rules and info here:http://nyqp.org/wordpress/

The NYQP is a chance for NY operators to be “chased”. Other NY stations and everyone else will be looking to contact NY operators. Since the majority of stations will be from the US and Canada, signals should be strong and easy to work. No matter if you prefer SSB, CW or the RTTY/Digital modes, the NYQP has something for you! The most important thing is to have fun. Be there!
