Field Day 2016

The annual Amateur Radio Relay League (ARRL) Field Day event will be held June 25 and 26, 2016.  ARRL Field Day is the most popular on-the-air amateur radio 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.

Falmouth Amateur Radio Association (FARA) will be operating during Field Day from the Barnstable County Fairgrounds parking lot located at the intersection of RT 151 and Currier Road in Falmouth.  We will be setting up on Friday, June 24 beginning at 9am.  Field Day operations will begin at 2PM on Saturday and be continuous through 4:59 PM on Sunday.  FARA will be operating a "Get on the Air" (GOTA) station, which provides an opportunity for the public to get on the air and make contacts under the supervision of a licensed operator.  FARA encourages anyone interested in learning more about amateur radio to visit our Field Day location.  Follow the Twitter hashtag #ARRLFD to learn more about Field Day activities.
