Join us for Field Day 2018

 

Field Day is ham radio’s open house. Every June, more than 40,000 hams throughout North America set up temporary transmitting stations in public places to demonstrate ham radio’s science, skill and service to our communities and our nation. It combines public service, emergency preparedness, community outreach, and technical skills all in a single event. Field Day has been an annual event since 1933, and remains the most popular event in ham radio.1

The Hazel Park Amateur Radio Club has participated in this annual event since 1967.  Come spend Field Day with us on June 23 & 24, 2018 at Scout Park, in Hazel Park, Michigan (just north of Detroit).

We’re ON THE AIR around the clock, 2PM Saturday to 2PM Sunday!

ALL Hams Welcome! No experience necessary! Come out and make some contacts!

Meet for breakfast: 8AM Saturday, June 23 at Star Family Dining.
Set up: 9AM June 23 at Scout Park, Hazel Park
Tear down: 2PM, June 24 at Scout Park, Hazel Park

Ham radio: It’s not just for old guys anymore

This video from YouTube shows 9 year old Yoshiki, KH0UA, operating in the 2009 All Asian DX Phone Contest from Saipan in the Northern Mariana Islands. Yoshiki is licensed in Japan as JF1UCV and contests from Saipan with his dad Kuniyoshi, 7J1FPU/W1FPU. The exchange for the contest is RS + age. Note that his second contact is with a 10 year old Japanese girl Eri, JF1VGZ/1 and they exchange 59 09 and 59 10.
