Field Day

  • GOTA


  • slide
  • Spider Beam

Every year on the fourth full weekend in June the ARRL hosts a nation wide event where more than 40,000 ham radio operators setup antennas to demonstrate ham radio's science, skill and service to our communities and our nation. The goal of this event is to contact as many other field day stations as possible and to learn how to operate the radio in non optimal conditions. The event runs from 1800 UTC Saturday and running through 2059 UTC Sunday (2:00PM Saturday - 4:59PM Sunday).

The Antietam Radio Association normally operates a GOTA station or Get On The Air station which allows someone without their license to experience what it is like to operate a Amateur radio. We also have a dinner that the club provides to welcome new members and people from the public to learn more about Amateur radio. 

Please come join us at this event or any other event and if you have any questions please reach out to one of the members of the club.
