ARRL Field Day, the fourth weekend in June, puts amateur radio on full display nationwide when operators fan out to parks, fields, and other public places to simulate emergency communications in time of a disaster. The MRAC utilizes a public location and invites other amateur radio operators to join in the effort to showcase reliable communications using Morse Code, voice, data, and satellite modes. The public is welcome to view our operations and find out more about Amateur Radio.

The object of Field Day is to communicate with as many other Field Day stations on the designated HF, VHF, and UHF bands. We encourage all club members and guests to participate and enhance their radio communications knowledge and skills. The public is welcome to observe and learn about this fascinating hobby in a simulated emergency communications environment.
