Once again over the weekend of June 25th and 26th the Milford Amateur Radio Club will be participating in the annual ARRL Field Day exercise.
The club will be operating three stations this year working with several modes of communications including SSB (single sideband) voice, morse code (CW), as well as RTTY (radio teletype). The club will also be using several different types of antennas presenting a opportunity to see how different antennas work for communications.
In addition to the three main stations the club will also be supporting a GOTA (Get On The Air) station. Although the Field Day activity runs 24 hours the GOTA station will only run from 2:00pm to 8:00pm on Saturday. This station will provide an opportunity for newly licensed or non-licensed to experience the excite of making contacts with other stations from other areas of North America. There will be coaches present to help walk you through the process.
There will also be information available on how to become a ham and other educational information. There will also be other coaches available to answer questions about our operation and general ham radio questions.
The club will be setup on the backside of the Mulberry Elementary School. The address is 5950 Buckwheat Road, Milford, OH, 45150. See map for location.
