The Chattanooga Amateur Radio Club supports and sponsors participation in Field Day to provide much-needed experience in setting up and operating an Amateur Radio station in less than perfect conditions…just as would be encountered in a post-disaster condition.

Our Communications Trailer Will Be On-Hand at Field Day.

Field Day provides near-real world operating conditions but not from the comfort of your easy chair but from an often outside environment where the basic needs are minimal such as power, field antennas, little climatic control, and such.  Field Day is also perfect for personal fun when you wish to “go play radio” in a park, rural area, or in your own backyard.

Field Day also provides fun opportunities to learn just what it takes to be more mobile with everything needed to operate a bit more in the rough than normally done.

To encourage healthy competition, points are earned for stations contacted, use of emergency power, number of stations operated, etc.  Winning can be fun but the real purpose is to develop your knowledge and skill to operate under post-disaster conditions.

Working volunteers will receive a meal ticket for supper on Saturday night or breakfast on Sunday morning.

So join us for Field Day 2022.  We have lots of fun things to do as we prepare for and operate for 24 hours.
