2017 Field Day 

June 24-25, 2017

Field 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.

Whitley County Amateur Radio Club hosted the 2017 Field Day at the Whitley County 4-H Fairgrounds, thank you for their generosity and hospitality!
