ARRL Field Day – June 22-23, 2024

Field Day this year will be held at Wincrest Park, 1342 Woodpark Rd, Winona.  Come join in the fun and operate one of the 2 stations.  This year we will have a dedicate get-on-the-air station for non-hams to participate!  Bring your family and friends to make a contact or two.  We are again asking those planning to operate sign up for one or more 1-hour time slots.  We would also ask that you indicate your preferred mode of operation as well to better coordinate the reconfiguration of stations as needed.

For the full details on the event, see the Field Day page here.
