What: Sierra Foothills Amateur Radio Club, 2021 Field Day Event.

The Sierra Foothills ARC has a rich history of participating in Field Day. Every year the club gathers someplace (usually up in the Sierras), raises antennas, shelters, setup radios, cookouts and participates in the contest. Field Day is both an operations and social event. Some members come to operate, some to learn about operating and antennas, some just to eat and some just to watch. Everyone is welcome to attend.

We will have 4 HF stations and one bonus VHF/UHF station. If you want to use headphones or a headset, we are asking that you bring your own with 3.5mm mono or stereo plug. No common microphone plug as there will be several radio models. The club will provide Clorox wipes and hand sanitizer at each station.

When: Begins Saturday the 26th at 11:00 am and ends Sunday the 27th at 11:00 am

Where: Georgetown Airport Campground at 6245 Aerodrome Way, Georgetown 95634

Help us plan for Field Day by taking this short survey and RSVP. Let us know if you will be able to help set-up, operate, break-down, what meals you will attend and if you will be camping.
