DMS Amateur Radio Field Day 2012

The newly formed DMS Amatuer Radio Club KD5MS will be participating in the Annual ARRL Field Day.

Field Day according to Wikipedia:

Field Day is an annual amateur radio exercise, widely sponsored by IARU regions and member organizations, encouraging emergency communications preparedness among amateur radio operators. In the United States, it is typically the largest single emergency preparedness exercise in the country, with over 30,000 operators participating each year. 

The Objective of Field Day is:

 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.

When is Field Day?

Field Day begins at 1800 UTC Saturday June 23rd and runs through 2059 UTC Sunday June 24th

Who can attend DMS Field Day?

Everyone is welcome to come out and learn about DMS, Electronics, and Amateur Radio.  We get extra points for people that come out and talk on the radios. If you know any elected officials, we get points for them just stopping by. We will have Hamburgers and Hotdogs, snacks and drinks.
