ARRL Field DAY

June 24, 2017

Lake Robinson, Greer SC


Every year, radio amateurs in the US get the gear out of doors on Field Day.  The goal is to set up radio gear and antennas in not so ideal situations.  It is meant to demonstrate what is possible in case of an emergency.  Although, it is not a contest, it is treated by many as one.  Operating as a 2A this year, the club reached 8358 points and  placed 12th overall in the country, 2nd in Roanoke Division and 1st in SC in the 2A Class.  The video on the right is from the 2017 Event and the video was taken by Dave Anderson K4SV and uploaded to YouTube.  The Field Day coordinator for 2017 was Ariel NY4G.   It was his goal to get into the top ten position.   We had some setbacks with weather but despite that we did well.   Thanks to all the volunteers.
