2017 Field Day Announcement
ARRL Field day 2023 is quickly approaching. MARCA has reserved the Gentry Group Campground and hopefully there are no Forest Fires in the area and the Forest Service won’t close the forest just before our visit as they sometimes do. Field Day starts Saturday June 24th and Sunday June 25th. We will begin our site setup early afternoon, 1pm-ish, on Friday June 23rd. The official start of the operating period is 11:00 am Saturday morning and the ending time is 10:59 am Sunday morning.
Members, if you are planning on attending, Please contact Paul Bennett, kd7kdo, Field Day Committee Chair to confirm your attendance.
Guests interested in amateur radio, or curious about Field Day, or just looking for an adventure are welcome to attend, we'll bring you right into the activity with no worries.
