ARRL Field Day 2024

The Wiregrass Amateur Radio Club will once again participate in ARRL Field Day on Saturday and Sunday, June 22-23, 2024. The club will be set up at Northside Methodist Academy, located at 2600 Redmond Road in Dothan.  The club will be operating starting at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 22.

The purpose of ARRL Field Day is to practice portable operations and hone our emergency communications skills. Amateur radio plays a huge role in the community, especially in the event of a natural disaster when normal communications are down for any period of time. Field Day gives us the opportunity to practice set-up and operation of our stations, so we can better respond when the need arises.

If you are a ham radio licensee, regardless if you are a club member or not, we invite you out to participate. Even if you do not have an amateur radio license, we invite you to come out and see what it’s all about. We’ll even let you get on the air if you like!
