ARRL Field DAY

June 23-24, 2018

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 last 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 video on the left was compiled by Brad AE4VJ.  The Greer Club footage starts at 5 minutes into the video with some really cool drone shots of Dave K4SV's tribander and also of the Hexbeam.  The Field Day coordinator for 2018 is Dave Ivey KE4EA.   Gary W4EEY made the video for the 2018 effort and that is now posted on YouTube
