Field Day

Logo_MIRA_small

Field Day 2017 will be an opportunity to test our skills and ability and to showcase them to the public at the same time. Simulating a continental emergency mobilization ham radio operators in Canada and the USA spend 24 hours trading messages to simulate communications traffic that might be originated during an emergency. Its a lot of fun doing a serious task.

Field Day is part educational event, part operating event, part public relations event – and ALL about FUN!

It happens this year on June 24-25, 2017.

Our Club always has a strong showing on the ground utilizing the OECT communications trailer, as well as the skills and abilities of our members in setting up, operating and dismantling the station in a short period of time.

Gordon (VE7IK) and Don (VE7AX) have volunteered to coordinate the planning and operation of our Club Field Day effort in 2017. We will update this page as their ambitious plans develop to keep club members informed. Its not too early to make a volunteer commitment to Gordon and Don to participate by taking a shift at one of the stations that will be in operation this year.
