Field Day


Cary Amateur Radio Club 2020 Field Day Plans

This year ARRL Field Day is on June 22nd and 23rd, 2020. CARC will have the privilege of assisting the Raleigh Amateur Radio Society in operating stations located on the Carroll Farm at 4501 Friendship Rd. in Apex, NC. All members are urged to participate and meet Hams in our sister club in Raleigh.

On Friday June 21st, beginning at 10:00 AM volunteers, leaders, and operators begin setting up. Duties will include lofting antennas and feed lines and station set ups for each of the bands and modes.

On Saturday, June 22nd at 8:00 AM set up will resume. At noon, equipment checks will be made and final instructions given everyone for the start of the actual on-air event at 2:00 PM.

For the next 24 hours “CQ Field Day” will be called on 10M, 15M, 20M, 40M, and 80M bands, both phone and CW. Saturday evening there will be a catered meal, one that is not to be missed! There is also a very nice lunch on Sunday, with the event ending at 2:00 PM



We had two club stations participating in Field Day on Saturday, June 23, 2018 covering the 20 and 40 meter bands.
