Simple Ham Radio Antennas--HAM RADIO BACKYARD SETUP FIELD DAY. Post #743.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/2Mgd06UAHbU.  The ARRL Field Day is coming on the last full weekend of June.  Field Day is an ARRL-sponsored event in which radio amateurs and their clubs set up outdoors to demonstrate the hobby to the public, as well as their capabilities to operate in an emergency.  If you can't join an Amateur Radio Club this year for Field Day, why not run solo at your home or nearby park as a category 1D (commercial mains) or a category 1E (emergency power) station?  I've done this several times and had a good time being in the outdoors.  In this video by "dirtbike5100", we see how simple it is to organize, set up, and operate a portable station for a Field Day event.  The important thing is to have some fun and to test your capabilities to run your amateur radio station under field conditions.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars. These news feeds are updated daily. Thanks for joining us today!  Aloha es 73 de Russ (KH6JRM).
