2015 Field Day Logo from ARRL

Saturday & Sunday

June 27 & 28

Where:  Livingston County Emergency Operations Center (EOC)

When:  June 27th, 28th

The Plan:  Begin setting up shelters and antennas on Friday afternoon also related to another Klub event on Saturday at Noon already.

Objective:  To work as many stations as possible on any and all amateur bands (excluding the 60, 30, 17, and 12-meter bands) and to learn to operate in abnormal situations in less than optimal conditions. Field Day is open to all amateurs in the areas covered by the ARRL/RAC Field Organizations and countries within IARU Region 2. DX stations residing in other regions may be contacted for credit, but are not eligible to submit entries.

Radio Bands:  Any Amateur Radio band except 12, 17, 30 and 60 Meters.

Other Information:  This is an Emergency Communications Excersize.  Various County, City, Village and Township elected officials as well as Police and Fire Chiefs have been invited to stop by during the Field Day Excersize to gain a better understanding or just witness how Livingston County is including Amateur Radio in its emergency response plans and to see the effectiveness of the technology and people.
