Field Day 2018

Field Day is June 23-24, and will be held at Okotoks Fire Station #1 on Milligan Drive. 

The planning committee is looking for members and friends to help to set up the stations Saturday morning from 8:00am, and break down on Sunday from 12:00pm.

We also need operators for the weekend. Voice, CW, Digital. Take your pick. We’ll have 3 stations on the air, running on emergency power (aka generator).
We are not expecting you to stay all weekend, but if you want to that would be great, an hour or two here and there would be much appreciated.

Are you a recently licensed operator ? This is a great opportunity to see other operators in action, and get some operating experience. Come on by, there will good coaching and learning opportunities, a great way to ease your way on the air.

If you have a portable satellite station you could bring along we will find you a space. It means additional bonus points!

And lastly, lunch will be provided we are done setting up Saturday morning. Dinner will be served Saturday evening for operators and friends. Snacks and beverages will be available throughout the event.

If you can help in anyway please let the committee know at :
