Field Day is Saturday, June 27 beginning at 2:00 PM and running through 1:59 PM Sunday. We will be at the same location as last year, the Community Center, 175 Lakeview Dr., Nicholson, Georgia. We will have full use of the Community Center including restrooms and a full kitchen. Most of the radio operations will take place inside the air conditioned communications trailer parked behind the Community Center.
There will be three operating stations, a full time CW station, and two stations operating SSB, CW and some digital modes. There will also be a GET-ON-THE-AIR (GOTA) station. Operators of all skill levels will be needed to keep the stations active for the entire Field Day weekend. Extra Class operators will be on site the entire time so any class operator will have full use of the bands. All members of NorthEast Georgia Amateur Radio Club, Athens Radio Club and any licensed amateur radio operator will be welcome to join the fun. If you don't have your license yet, come on by and check out the activities.
Setup for Field Day will start several hours before the 2:00 PM start time so any help will be appreciated.
Saturday afternoon dinner will be served. Don't miss out!

Are you interested in learning more about Amateur Radio?
Amateur Radio operators (Hams) are all ages and come from many different backgrounds. Becoming a licensed Ham has never been easier. There are so many different aspects of the hobby you will never be able to explore them all. Talk to a Ham on board the International Space Station, communicate with someone on the other side of the world, build your station from parts or antique radios, become involved with Emergency Communications, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Get started by sending us a message on the Contact Page or visit This Page for loads of information.
