Field Day – 25th & 26th of June

Members of the Wayne County Amateur Radio Association (WCARA) in conjunction with the Kinston Amateur Radio Society and the Samson County Amateur Radio Service will be participating jointly in the national Amateur Radio Field Day exercise on the 25th and 26th of June. Operation will commence at 2pm on the 25th and cease at 2pm on the 26th. The Field Day site is located in the wooded area across form 2104 Salem Church Road, Goldsboro NC 27530, just south of Lane Tree Golf Course

We will be operating on 10, 15, 20, 40 and 80 meters.  Additionally, we will have a Satellite station as well as a GOTA (Get on the Air) station. The GOTA station is for non-Hams as well as new Ham to get one-on-one hands-on instruction in the operation of HF radio as well as making real time contacts.

Again, everyone is welcome to join us, Club Members, Non-Club Members, New Hams, or if you are just interested in learning more about Ham radio.
