Please join the 4x4 Ham group for ARRL Field Day on the weekend of June 25, 2011.

Are you or someone you know interested in Amateur (Ham) Radio? Are you a Technician looking to gain more experience using the HF bands? Would you like to learn how to operate different modes such as SSB, CW, PSK31, satellites, etc.? Do you like consuming mass quanties of bacon? Or are you just looking for a reason to camp (optional) in the tall pines north of Payson with a great group of people?

ARRL Field Day is held the 4th full weekend of June each year. The Field Day objective is to work as many stations as possible on any and all amateur bands (excluding the 60, 30, 17, and 12-meter bands) and to learn to operate in abnormal situations in less than optimal conditions. Bonus points are given for operating without commercial power, using technologies like solar/battery combinations, portable generators, etc.

2011 marks the 3rd annual 4x4 Ham participated Field Day. Come out and camp with us. We will be providing all the radios, antennas, and other equipment needed. If you have your own, feel free to bring it. We will have many Extra class control operators on site, so if you are a Technician, General, or even someone interested in ham radio, but no license yet, you can join us and operate with Extra class privelages. This year we are also hosting a testing session Saturday at 2pm, so pre-register for that if interested. As always, we'll eat well with group breakfast and potluck dinner. The site is not difficult to access. RV and trailer friendly. (High clearance is probably better. Cars may have a little problem getting there.)
