Amateur Radio Field Day
It is time for the Amateur Radio Field Day Event. This year, on June 26 & 27, the members of Clay County Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ClayARES), and the Orange Park Amateur Radio Club (OPARC) will demonstrate our communication capabilities at our Annual Field Day. We open this event to our served agencies and the public so that they can see first-hand how we assist our community.
ARRL Field Day is the single most popular on-the-air event held annually in the US and Canada. On the fourth weekend of June of each year, thousands of radio amateurs gather with their clubs, groups or simply with friends to operate from remote locations.
Field Day is a picnic, a campout, practice for emergencies, an informal contest and, most of all, FUN!
