Field Day

URAC’s 2020 Annual Field Day event … since it’s inception in 1933, United Radio Amateur Club has participated in every Field Day. It is the most popular (and most fun) Amateur Radio “on the air event” of the year.

Location, this year, is where YOU are!

This year’s 24-hour ARRL Field Day (June 27-28) will mostly be from home stations due to COVID-19.

Two ARRL temporary rule changes makes FD 2020 more exciting for all:

First, Field Day 2020 class 1-D stations (single-operator home stations using commercial mains AC power) will receive point credit from contacts with other 1D stations.

This year’s temporary rules allow hams without generators, solar-charge battery banks, or the like to participate more fully from their home.

Also for this year’s Field Day the ARRL will calculate aggregated “club” scores. When you send in your personal score results (see Field Day rules and temporary rule waivers) you can add United Radio Amateur Club as the club to which you wish to add your scores! Per the ARRL, in order for results to be tabulated correctly, all club participants must enter the club’s official name exactly the same, avoiding abbreviations or acronyms. This is important!

Submit your scores here.

Have a good time on Field Day.
