Winter Field Day 2023

Winter Field Day – January 28th 2023

Come have a fun day in the park and enjoy working the bands! SOARA will be participating in Winter Field Day again this year. WFD is an emergency communication exercise. Ham radio operators should practice portable emergency communications in winter environments as the potential for freezing temperatures, snow, ice, and other hazards present unique operational concerns. WFD is formatted to help increase your level of preparedness for disasters and improve your operational skills in subpar conditions. We don’t have the snow and freezing temps here in sunny SoCal but should still be able to operate in the winter.

This is a low-key event, we won’t be setting up the tent or the big beam antennas. Bring your field kit or new antenna you want to try out and have a relaxing time working stations all over the world. We will operate Saturday only between 9am and sundown. Burgers will be provided for lunch.

Where: Gillian Park, 24960 Felipe Rd, Mission Viejo, CA 92692

When: Saturday Jan 28th, 9am-sundown
