Field Day is Coming! Field Day is Coming!

Field Day is June 27-28. TARS will return to Tom Brown Park again this year.

If you have never attended a Field Day, please read this: Field Day Overview.

Donuts arrive about 8 am. Then we will begin assembling stations and erecting antennas. We will have testing for all license classes at 10 am. Lunch will be around noon. The official event starts at 2:00. Dinner will be around 5 or 6 pm. The traditional Phone Station cookies appear after midnight. It’s all over at 2 the next afternoon, although we will have a lot of it taken down by then.

Everyone is welcome. Bring the family and friends. Plan to operate.
