Object of ARRL Field Day:
To work as many stations as possible on any and all amateur bands
(excluding the 60, 30, 17, and 12-meter bands)
and in doing so to learn to operate in abnormal situations in less than optimal conditions.
A premium is placed on developing skills to meet the challenges of emergency preparedness
as well as to acquaint the general public with the capabilities of Amateur Radio.
Our "GOTA" (Get On The Air) station is here for our UN-licensed and UNDER licensed visitors
to get their feet wet and seize the opportunity to work distant stations operate an amateur radio HF station with a
licensed operator there to guide along the way.  AND TO HAVE SOME FUN!
Most importantly, let's HAVE FUN!
