The Fort Worth NWS SKYWARN Radio Desk team will be active on several bands and modes during Field Day, June 22-23, from the Fort Worth National Weather Service Forecast Office. Please read and share our press release, titled "RADIO HAMS" FROM TARRANT COUNTY JOIN IN NATIONAL DEPLOYMENT - A Unique Look at Emergency Communications. We hope to talk to many of you, and add your call signs and information to our log. We'll try to publish the bands and frequencies we are working periodically during the event, on this wx5fwd.org web site and via our WX5FWD Twitter account.
ARRL Field Day is the single most popular on-the-air event held annually in the US and Canada. On the fourth weekend of June of each year, more than 35,000 radio amateurs gather with their clubs, groups or simply with friends to operate from remote locations.Field Day is a picnic, a campout, practice for emergencies, an informal contest and, most of all, FUN! It is a time where many aspects of Amateur Radio come together to highlight our many roles. While some will treat it as a contest, other groups use the opportunity to practice their emergency response capabilities. It is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate Amateur Radio to the organizations that Amateur Radio might serve in an emergency, as well as the general public. For many clubs, ARRL Field Day is one of the highlights of their annual calendar.
