The ARRL Field Day emergency communications exercise is coming to the last full weekend in June (23-24 June 2018).  Thousands of radio amateurs from the U.S. and Canada will be on the air testing their antennas, rigs, and emergency procedures during this busy weekend.  Although Field Day is an official preparedness exercise, the event is also a popular contest which fills the amateur radio bands with exciting calls and locations.

In this video from the "HamRadioConcepts Amateur Radio Channel", we learn the basics of operating a Field Day ham station  and how to make effective contacts during the brief operations period.  Later on, I'll be sharing some intriguing antenna designs for your consideration. 

So, check out the video and prepare yourself for an exciting contest experience.
