W8EDU, the university’s amateur radio club, is hosting its annual Field Day on Saturday, June, 22, and Sunday, June 23, at Squire Valleevue Farm. Participants will be operating from and staying overnight in the farm cottage, known as the Pink Pig. Parking is available next to the building.
Field Day is a two-day amateur radio holiday when radio operators across North America are encouraged to get on the air and practice operating for emergencies. No license is required to participate. All ages and experience levels are welcome and observers can attend any time during the two days of the event.
Club members will be available to coach visitors through the experience. Licensed operators will provide legally-required supervision. Free license exams will be offered, as well, for anyone interested in getting licensed or upgrading.
