KCARC Field Day 2022

Field Day is ham radio’s open house. Every June,  the KCARC and 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.

This year the KCARC will be back at the Hamby Volunteer Fire Department Station located at 4408 Hwy 351.
