Field Day

Field Day is held each year during the 4th full weekend in June and gives amateur radio clubs around the country a chance to demonstrate their emergency operating skills. During a 24 hour marathon (Saturday 2 p.m. EDT to Sunday 2 p.m. EDT), radios all over the U.S. and Canada are operated without using commercial electrical power. Generally only power derived from batteries, generators, or other alternative energy sources, such as solar power, are used to power the radios. People may also use commercial power at their home stations or at an Emergency Operation Center (EOC) after demonstrating that they have a backup power source that is not on the commercial power grid. Finally, there is a small group (larger since COVID-19 pandemic) using commercial power without any backup power generating capability who used to only be able to contact stations that have backup power. Please note this restriction has been permanently removed since being dropped for the COVID-19 pandemic.

Field Day 2023 will be held on Saturday June 24 and Sunday June 25. Links to historical results and photos from past Field Days are available below.

If you choose to do a personal operation from home or in another park, please enter "New Providence ARC" as the club name for the club aggregate scoring.
