Winter Field Day – January 27th and 28th

Surprise, the club will be participating in Winter Field Day. Get ready to break out the Arizona Winter Parka’s (sweat shirt or light jacket), and come hang out with us for this event.

Much like regular Field Day, we will have a specific designation, and the point is to make as many contacts as possible.

Here is the Winter Field Day WEBSITE and here are the RULES.

Please read both before coming out. I will have a copy onsite, but that is mostly used for reference.

We will be doing another Facebook and Youtube live this time around. It was a big hit the last time and it fits perfectly with the updated version of the club.

We will have a campfire. However, like our normal outings, this is a bring your own adventure and gear. We will have several radios onsite and we encourage sharing. We also encourage new attempts at things. Winlink, once again, we will attempt Winlink. I think we will also attempt Olivia and maybe RTTY.

If there is something else you would like to experiment with, lets do it.

Weather, most of you know that our winter weather is not like the snowy North. But temps in the desert can get down below freezing. We will be posting updated weather as it gets closer, but be prepared for “winter” weather for Arizona.

This site does have flush toilets and water. It even has showers nearby.

Also, please send an email to if you plan on attending.
