Field Day 2017

Big News!  Talk to NE4GA's AMSAT this Field Day!

After last year's little Field Day problem, we've decided to give it another try. We may have been a little ambitious with our Field Day goals in 2016 so we've scaled back our plans a bit.

In case you've forgotten the events from last year, here's a little video showing the highlights from our attempted rocket launch. You can clearly see the Nicholson water tower next to the launch site.

In order make sure this year's Field Day is a success, we scaled back our rocket just a bit. Here's a little preview of our plans for Field Day 2017:

Because of last year's little incident, each club member will be accessed a small fee of $4,356,250 to cover insurance costs. Cash or check is acceptable. Save your pennies and join us for ARRL Field Day 2017 on June 24-25.

The North East Georgia Amateur Radio Club supports camaraderie and fellowship among those with an interest in Amateur Radio. Whatever your interests or level of knowledge, you can find a home with us! Whether your interest are in public service, contesting, dx’ing, technical aspects or whatever else there is a place for you around the table.

The club uses the callsign NE4GA during several events throughout the year including ARRL Field Day, the Georgia QSO Party and any other excuse we can find to get on the air. 

If you have had a QSO with us and would like a QSL Card, visit the QSL Info page.
