Amateur Radio Field Day 2018 – Azle, Texas

FieldDay2014

June 23rd-24th, 2018 – 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 2018 for WC5C, at Azle Fire Department. Public Information and demonstration 3pm to 5pm Saturday.
