Our Field Day station features a "Get on the Air" (GOTA) station in addition to other field day and educational activities. As a joint effort of our clubs we will have talk-ins on the Stuart repeater on 147.060+ (tones to be off during these times). All people of any age interested in communications and electronics technology are welcome to visit us, Get on the Air, and find out more about this fascinating hobby which is also a Public Service resource in times of emergency.

What is Field Day?

Field Day is an Amateur (Ham) Radio exercise held on the last weekend of June each year to encourage emergency communications preparedness among amateur radio operators world-wide.  USA Field Day is the largest single emergency preparedness exercise, with over 30,000 hams typically participating in the two day long event.

Field Day is a time to hone our skills and showcase our emergency preparedness as well as introduce the hobby to the public. Ham radio means something different to each person, but most of all, we are a friendly and helpful fraternity of people from all walks of life, and all geographic areas, who are willing to pitch-in and do what needs to be done.  Come to Field Day in Stuart, Florida or find a local Field Day event in your area. You may be surprised at who you see there, and amazed at the advanced technologies we employ for communications fun as well as emergency public service.

Among the technologies we intend to demonstrate on our huge towers "off the grid" are Basic Amateur Radio communications, D-STAR, WINLINK (email over ham radio) and of course the popular Morse Code mode (also called CW). Please join in the fun!
