Field Day 2022 is almost here!

The Arctic Amateur Radio Club is holding an ARRL Field Day event on Saturday June 25, 2022

You can read the rules at  http://www.arrl.org/field-day#rules

Our event location is the Steese Fire Station on Farmers Loop Road near the intersection of Skyline Drive.  This is the east end of Farmers Loop.

The exact address is 800 William C Leary Lane.

We plan to gather at the fire station at 9 AM to do setup.

The operating event begins on the air at 10 AM.

We have a radio, antenna, coax etc.

Somebody is bringing cooler/ice/water.

We’re looking for a few folks to help with setup and of course get on the air and make contacts.

If somebody has a pop-up shelter with mosquito screen it would sure make a great place to operate outside without being eaten alive by the state bird 🙂

For more information please contact John, AL7ID, directly.

Hope you can join us!


We had a great discussion about the future of the Arctic Amateur Radio Club during our March 11th meeting. A big ‘thank you!’ goes out to those who filled out the strategic survey.
