Winter Field Day

W1AW to be on the Air for Winter Field Day

Are you interested in trying a winter Field Day.  MARA will be participating in Winter Field Day this year.  We are planning to setup at Finger Lake Campground off Bogard Road.  Contact our coordinator, Chris Hamman/KL5BF if you would like to participate.  We need a list of folks who want to get into the campground by 25 Jan. Operators will be setting up as individual stations in tents or campers.  Setup time will be 0800 and on the air by 1000.

Members of the Warren County (New York) Amateur Radio Club (W2WCR) will activate Maxim Memorial Station W1AW for Winter Field Day 2021 over the January 30 – 31 weekend. Winter Field Day is sponsored by the Winter Field Day Association (WFDA), which believes that emergency communication is important throughout the year. Winter Field Day is open to radio amateurs worldwide. The WFDA’s goal is to help enhance operating skills and to prepare participants for all environmental conditions. Winter Field Day runs for 24 hours. Station set-up may start no earlier than 1900 UTC on the day before the event and may not take any longer than 24 hours in total. Expect activity on all amateur bands except 12, 17, 30, and 60 meters. All modes that can handle the required exchange are welcome; this does not include FT8. Entry categories include indoor, outdoor, and home.

Full details are on the Winter Field Day website.
