The best time to visit our Field Day activities would be from 11 a.m. on Saturday, June 25 to about 5 p.m. You will find participants trying to make as many contacts as possible. We will have a station for visitors who have not been on the air for a long time and for people who want to try ham radio under the supervision of a licensed ham.
