The York County Amateur Radio Society - YCARS - will be hosting the annual American Radio Relay League (ARRL) Field Day from 2:00pm Saturday June 22 until 2:00pm Sunday June 23, 2019 at the pavilion in Westminster Park, Rock Hill, SC.
Field Day is the most popular amateur radio event each year with over 40,000 amateur radio operators participating across the county. It is a time for local clubs to get out into their community and demonstrate their capabilities. Clubs participate in Field Day through making radio contacts with other operators as part of a contest. Last year YCARS placed first in our South Carolina division with over 1,600 contacts. This was made possible with the help of our local community and we need your help again this year!
This event provides an opportunity to practice radio communication operations for events like power outages and hurricanes. All communications during Field Day will be powered with solar or auxiliary power sources. We will be utilizing multiple different portable and mobile radios and have various portable antennas on site. We will be operating two voice stations, one digital station and one CW (morse code) station. Our operators will gladly answer any questions you may have about the mode they are operating and the equipment they are utilizing.
We will be hosting a Get on the Air Station for anyone interested in learning how to operate an amateur radio. Don’t have an amateur radio license? No problem! The event is open to the public and everyone is encouraged to come out and join in the fun.
