2020 ARRL Field Day June 27-28, 2020 -UPDATE

Out of an abundance of caution the DCARC Executive board has unanimously decided to CANCEL the in person activities this year due to the risks associated with COVID-19.

This means that we will not be setting up the War Wagon to Operate from the Episcopal Church in Centerville.

We encourage each member do get on the air during Field Day. Throughout the weekend feel free to post pictures on our Facebook page of you operating during the event!

Following Field Day weekend we encourage all members to submit their logs to the ARRL and also would ask that you submit a copy to the club. The website will be setup to accept logs in the next few days.

We will be posting a few videos on our Website, Facebook Page and YouTube channel through the weekend.

We would like to THANK everyone who so diligently worked to put this event together. Your contribution is appreciated.

Thank you for your understanding and please Stay Safe!

-Larry Claussen
