Field Day


ARRL Field Day is the most popular on-the-air event held annually in the US and Canada. On the fourth weekend of June, more than 35,000 radio amateurs gather with their clubs, groups or simply with friends to operate from remote locations. FARA sets up a variety of equipment and antennas for each annual ARRL Field Day event.  

FARA operators cover several bands and modes, scoring well among clubs of our size.  A cook out is held in conjunction with field day.  We are fortunate to have access to the Barnstable County Fairgrounds property, which provides a very nice location for Field Day activities.  The photo's below were taken during the 2014 field day.
