Day is a nationwide emergency communications preparedness drill
held annually on the fourth week end of June. This year's Field
Day will be held on June 22 & 23. Field Day is sponsored by
the American Radio Relay League
The ARRL is a nationwide organization of amateur radio operators.
Field Day's main focus is emergency communications preparedness. Amateur radio clubs across the country, including TARA, sponsor a field day site which conducts communications under simulated emergency conditions. Amateur operators prove their readiness for a genuine emergency by operating without the benefit of any commercial power source.
While emergency communications is the main focus of Field Day, amateur operators also seize the opportunity Field Day presents to inform the public about the many benefits offered by the amateur radio hobby, including public service communications and educational programs. And of course, the TARA Field Day site offers lots of good conversation and good food!
The public is invited to TARA Field Day site which this year will be at Frear Park in Troy, next to the tennis courts. If you can't make it to our site, find out where you can participate in your community! Get involved and support your local club!
last year's Field Day all the QSO's were counted and filed with
the ARRL. TARA made some 443 QSO's under the call of N2TY, for a
total of 1106 in the ENY section (Eastern New York).
