Field Day Photo Galleries
V7ARC has a proud tradition of setting up club stations in public areas for Field Day. In 2021, Field Day will be taking place June 26-27. We plan to set up at our favorite haunt, Natural Park. (See info below)
More information will be forthcoming as we hammer out the details for 2021. In the meantime, please contact Doug at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or comments.
What is Field Day?
In the words of the ARRL, "Field Day is ham radio's open house." Every year on the fourth full weekend in June, tens of thousands of hams across the nation set up temporary stations that are run on mobile power. Often, these stations are in public places, allowing us to demonstrate both the practicality and joys of amateur radio to passersby. For some, this is an excellent time to experiment with unconventional power sources, antennas, and radio equipment; for others, it's the ideal moment to bust out their tried-and-true emergency response setups. Regardless of each individual's take on this nationwide event, it's a wonderful time to get a bunch of hams together to engage with each other and the public about this fascinating hobby of ours.
Natural Park cannot be looked up by name on GPS. As such, we recommend looking up the actual address (3805 S Midsummer Ln, C/S, 80917) or following the below directions:
From North Academy, turn EAST on Maizeland Rd
Turn LEFT on Radiant Dr (Just past the shopping center)
Turn RIGHT on Tee Time Pl
Turn RIGHT on Serendipity Circle East
Take a LEFT onto either Midsummer Lane S or N (2nd and 3rd turns)
Natural Park will be to the WEST of the road (Look for all the vehicles with antennas and ham plates, you can't miss 'em!)
Over the years, we have taken many images at our Field Day events. The links below will take you to separate photo galleries for each year. These and many other photos can also be found on our Facebook page. If you've taken photos at any of these events and would like to see them added to our galleries, please contact Doug at email@example.com.
