Field Day 2021 updates!

This year the club has decided to do a little more testing, given the new building erected on the Ruritan site, and as a way to lessen the cross interference between antennas. We will begin setup on Friday, June 25 at 9A, rather than Saturday morning.

For Saturday’s dinner, the club will provide:

  • Fried Chicken
  • Mac and Cheese
  • Baked Beans
  • Potato Salad
  • Cole Slaw

We will also provide:

  • Water
  • Sodas of assorted varieties
  • Ice
  • Disposable plates, cups, napkins, etc…

Field Day is always the fourth full weekend of June, beginning at 1800 UTC Saturday and running through 2059 UTC Sunday (2:00PM Saturday - 4:59PM Sunday). It is the time of the year that nearly all hams looks forward to – partially because of the chance to stretch their rigs' legs and/or try out new antennas, but mainly because of the shared experiences and fellowship with their fellows operators.

The Antietam Radio Association usually holds its Field Day at the Leitersburg Ruritan Park, in Leitersburg, MD.

This year, Field Day 2021 operations will encompass June 26-27, beginning at 2 PM Saturday and continuing for 24 hours until 2 PM Sunday. Setup will begin Thursday or Friday, More details to follow. Please join us!
