Winter Field Day – January 26 – 27

YCARS will be participating in Winter Field Day. The event will run Saturday, January 26, at 2pm through Sunday, January 27, at 2pm.

The purpose of Winter Field Day is to foster Ham camaraderie, field operation, emergency operating preparedness, and just plain on the air, indoor and outdoor fun in the midst of winter for American, Canadian and DX Amateurs. Don’t let those winter doldrums keep you locked up in the house… get out and play some radio!!

We will run three operating stations from the YCARS clubhouse. We will have a dedicated SSB station, a dedicated CW station, and a third station which will be used for a mix of phone and digital modes.

YCARS won our class in SC during Summer Field Day 2018. We are optimistic that we can perform exceptionally well in Winter Field Day this year!

John Gendron, NJ4Z, is coordinating SSB operations. Darcy Pach, K4DQP is leading digital operations. Andy Kunik, AE8J, is coordinating CW operations. If you would like to participate, please reach out to one of them for timeslots that we are in need of filling.

Come by and say hi and support the operators and/or operate or log! We’d love to see as many club members as possible participate.

The clubhouse will be open to the public during this event for anyone who would like to stop by, learn about the club, meet YCARS members, and learn more about ham radio.
