Amateur Radio Relay League Field Day

On June 24th, the Kansas-Nebraska Radio Club will be participating in the 2017 Amateur Radio Relay League Field Day.  The KNRC will be set up at the Mitchell County Fairground in Beloit near the intersection of Walnut St and 15th St.  We will have our Communication Trailer set up and it will be open to the public to see and ask questions.  We will be setting up around 10am on the 24th.

Every June, more than 40,000 hams throughout North America set up temporary transmitting stations in public places to demonstrate ham radio’s science, skill and service to our communities and our nation.  It combines public service, emergency preparedness, community outreach and technical skills all in a single event.  Field day has been an annual event since 1933 and remains the most popular event in ham radio.

As part of this event, the KNRC will be running on a generator and using temporary antennas.  This is designed to simulate operation in an emergency situation.  We will be making contacts with other Ham Radio Operators across the nation using different modes of making contact.

On Monday, June 5th, the Mitchell County Commissioners signed a Proclamation declaring June 18th-Juner 24th as Amateur Radio Week in Mitchell County.
