Simple Ham Radio Antennas--ARRL Ham Radio Field Day 2014 at VE3WM. Post #471


The 2015 ARRL Field Day is this weekend (27-28 June 2015) and thousands of amateur radio operators will be setting up portable ham stations to practice emergency communications skills. I've found several videos of well-organized amateur radio clubs which show how a Field Day Site should be organized and managed. This video clip from Christopher (VE7ALB) is a good example of a radio club working together to get the best signals possible from their temporary location. This video was taken on 28 June 2014 at the Field Day site of the West Coast Amateur Radio Association in Victoria, British Columbia.  If you have trouble viewing this clip, please insert this URL into your browser search box:  http://youtu.be/N-DLoFWZwxA.  Christopher does an excellent job of capturing the spirit and mood of this Field Day Site.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.  You can follow our blog community with a free e-mail subscription or by tapping into the blog RSS feed.  Thanks for joining us today!  Aloha es 73 de Russ (KH6JRM).
