Amateur Radio / ARRL Field Day 2021

June 26th-27th, 2021 – Azle, Texas – Amateur Radio Field Day at the Azle Fire Department, 900 Lakeview Drive, Azle Texas 76020

ARRL Field Day is the single most popular on-the-air event held annually in the US and Canada. Each year over 35,000 amateurs gather with their clubs, friends or simply by themselves to operate.

ARRL Field Day is not a fully adjudicated contest, which explains much of its popularity. It is a time where many aspects of Amateur Radio come together to highlight our many roles. While some will treat it as a contest, most groups use the opportunity to practice their emergency response capabilities. It is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate Amateur Radio to local elected community leaders, key individuals with the organizations that Amateur Radio might serve in an emergency, as well as the general public. For many clubs, ARRL Field Day is one of the highlights of their annual calendar.

You are cordially invited to attend Field Day 2021 for WC5C, at Azle Fire Department. Public Information and demonstration 3pm to 5pm Saturday.

Field Day 2021 for WC5C will be especially meaningful as we operate from the N5ZKA Commemorative Azle Emergency Operations Center (EOC).

2021 Peach Pedal Bike Ride – 10 July 2021


The 2021 Peach Pedal Bike Ride is scheduled for Saturday, 10 July 2021 beginning and ending at Weatherford High School.  This is a big ride typically exceeding 2,200 participants.  The first riders leave WHS at 7:30am and the ride closes at 1:30pm.

Per Wayne Morris, AC5V: 

Here is the Peach Pedal signup sheet again. We really need SAG volunteers. You just need to be able to transport at least one rider and bike, usually to the start location. You need a radio and APRS if possible.

I  am working on documentation to give you detailed instructions. Basically, rest stop volunteers take up a position at the designated rest stop and report on activities, supplies, needs, etc. as requested. That is it. The SAG volunteers take a opposition at a designated rest stop until assistance is requested. When needed, they follow the bike route to locate and assist the rider. When done, you may get another assignment or return to your rest stop.

If you signup – also sign up for a tee shirt in your size at the bottom. Sometimes the offer t-shirts to the volunteers.

If you have questions, let us know.
