What is Field Day

ARRL Field Day is an annual amateur radio event widely regarded as the most popular on-air event in North America. Organized by the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), the event takes place over the fourth full weekend in June and encourages ham radio operators to set up temporary radio stations in various locations—such as parks, schools, or emergency centers—to demonstrate their skill and service. This exercise not only tests operators’ abilities to establish effective communication under simulated emergency conditions but also serves as an educational showcase to the public about the capabilities of amateur radio. Participants compete to make the most contacts, aiming to reach as many other stations as possible, thus promoting readiness and the invaluable use of amateur radio in providing emergency communications.
