Field Day

Field Day is our premier event.  All CCARES members are called out to participate in the most popular Amateur Radio contest in North America.  The event is sanctioned by the ARRL.

This year’s Field Day will begin operations at 11am PDT on Saturday, June 23, 2018, and end at 11am on the 24th.  We will operate continuous through those hours.  We will have four stations:

  2. The SSB HF station will be in the Fire Station 1 parking lot under a popup near the hose rack.  It will be a Kenwood TS-450S HF radio connected to a G5RV which CCFD will put up for us across the parking lot.  It’s callsign will be K6CCR.
  3. The Digital HF station will be in the Fire Station 1 EOC Radio Room.  It will be a Kenwood TS-450S HF radio connected to our A3S beam with 40M kit.  It’s callsign will be K6CCR.
