Field Day 2014

GRARA will be hosting it's annual field day event this year - a nation-wide public event to highlight emergency communications and practice making contacts around the USA and the world.


YOU ARE INVITED TO THIS PUBLIC EVENT!  Please come and join us to operate, or just to hang out and observe!

Our Location  - this year will be at Rockford's Cannonsburg Elementary School, 4894 Sturgis Ave NE, Rockford, MI.


Time: Saturday June 28th and Sunday June 29th.  Setup starts Saturday at 10:00, and operation starts at 2:00 PM on Saturday.  We operate continuously until Sunday at 12:00 PM.

The Goal: 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.

Our Radio Stations :  At the site we will be operating on the HF Bands 3-10MHz, with a voice and CW (Morse Code) station, and a VHF Station (50-432MHz).  All equipment has to be brought to the site, and set up at the beginning of the event.  No permanent equipment can be used.  Power will be supplied by portable generators.

GRARA Yahoo Group


What is the GRARA Yahoo Group, you ask? It's a bulletin board specifically made to keep members and friends up to date on club activities, treasures for sale, questions and comments on a daily basis. You can keep track of "what's happening" in any of three ways.


The first way is to go to the yahoo site by clicking the link above. If you join the free group, you will also be able to select getting an email every time someone posts a message, once a day in a digest or only if a moderator sends out a special message. (Most members get a single daily digest, some choose not get any email at all.)  You can also return to the site and search for whatever "tickles your fancy."
