2009 Field Day

Field Day is YARS' major annual exercise.  Ostensibly dressed up as a contest, the aim of this North American event is for amateur radio operators to set up and operate a field station for 24 hours and to make as many contacts with other amateur radio operators as possible.

Over 35,000 amateur radio operators participate across North America and outside of it.  YARS routinely makes contacts throughout North America and sometimes in Europe, Russia, Africa, South America and Hawaii. 

The event is always held on the last weekend of June.
