Field Day for K8SSJ

Amateur Radio Operators all over the world look forward to the annual Field Day operations. Field Day was originally set up to demonstrate how amateur radio operators can (and will) handle emergency situations. The idea is to set up your equipment in an public outdoor setting and operate from less then ideal situations, while making as many contacts worldwide as possible in a 24 hour period. It is always the last full weekend in June. Field Day operations can be handled by one or more people, or a group/club using one or more radios. As well as being a very serious activity, it is also fun for everyone involved.

The USS JURASSIC worked Field Day as a club event from Hannah Park in Hamersville, OH during 1999 and 2000. In 2001 we moved to Hanlon Park in Georgetown, OH, where we continued to hold Field Day through 2003. In 2004 we are moving to the Jackson Township Community Center (old grade school) in Ash Ridge, OH. In 2005 we moved to JURASSIC HQ in Hamersville, OH and will continue to hold Field Day there in 2006 as well.

This is planned to be an annual event in conjunction with our weekend in the park activities, which include grilling things like brontosaurus burgers, and other good food, as well as games and chatting with visitors about the club and amateur radio.
