Day is ham radio's open house. Every June, more than 40,000 hams
throughout North America set up temporary transmitting stations in
public places to demonstrate ham radio's science, skill and service to
our communities and our nation. It combines public service, emergency
preparedness, community outreach, and technical skills, all in a single
event. Field Day has been an annual event since 1933, and remains the
most popular event in ham radio.|
To work (to comminicate with) 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.
