Field Day 2020

The Saint Louis and Suburban Radio Club would like to cordially invite you to participate in the ARRL Field Day 2020 with us on June 27 and 28! Because we can’t safely operate like we have in the past, we are scheduling a number of activities to have fun even if we can’t be in the same physical location.

The rules for field day can be intimidating, so we’ve put together a 2020 Simplified Field Day Rules

With limited opportunities for social interaction, we will have the following events. Events are Saturday unless otherwise specified:

  • 1 pm – FIeld Day Operating Starts
  • 3 pm – Virtual Education – How to tune a dipole (see https://youtu.be/2hb99AypOqs)
  • 5 pm – Virtual Dinner (https://meet.google.com/mzn-cpwg-og)
  • 8 pm – SLSRC Net on the 146.850 repeater (feel free to join by Allstar or Echolink if you can’t connect via radio).
  • 1 pm Sunday – Field Day Ends

Visit the SLSRC web site at https://www.slsrc.org for more details. We even have a spotter page to help you find other St. Louis area hams and their frequencies to help you make more contacts. If you’re on a frequency calling, post it here and other local hams can find you to make contact. Let’s help each other start pile ups so we can get lots of contacts.  Get ready now – update your software, charge your batteries, and practice logging so you can do it in your sleep. If you still have specific questions, you can contact us at info@slsrc.org or fieldday@slsrc.org and we’ll do our best to get you an answer.

When entering your submission on the Field Day entry form, please use “St. Louis & Suburban RC” from the chooser. If you can’t find it in the menu, type in “st” in the field and then choose it from the drop down menu.
