This year, the AARA will be hosting Field Day at the farm of Steve AF5VR and Mel Webre.  We are looking forward to this event
and we hope that you are able to spend some time with us.  Handicap parking is available and bathroom amenities are on
premises.  We will begin setting stations up Saturday morning at 0800, with Field Day officially starting at 1300 and running
until 1300 on Sunday.

Camper spots will be available.  However, power, water, and sewer will not be available so please plan accordingly.
Please RSVP Steve Webre AF5VR or Danny Daigle KD5JSM if you plan on bringing a camper.


We will have AMOS II with the antenna trailer and many other antenna configurations available for use.  In the event
that you plan on bringing your own personal set up, please remember to bring all of your necessary gear (portable table,
battery power, radio, mic, coax, antenna, headset etc.)

In an effort to avoid any transmission interference, we will have band assignments for the different bands recognized by
ARRL Field Day.  Please help by adhering to band allocations that will be posted.  In the event that you want to operate
on a “band in use” accommodations can be made to get you into an area that avoids interference.  

** Please see Tom Dischler W5OHJ or Danny Daigle KD5JSM for assistance **


The AARA will be providing food and drinks.  However, if you have any special dietary requirements or personal preferences
