Winter Field Day 2023 is just around the corner, and the Halifax Amateur Radio Club is excited to invite all local Hams to join us in this annual event.
For those who may not be familiar with Winter Field Day, it is an annual event organized by the Winter Field Day Association (WFDA) to promote emergency preparedness and commu- nication skills among Amateur Radio operators. www.winterfieldday.com
This year, Winter Field Day will take place on the last full weekend of Janu- ary, giving Hams an opportunity to start the year off by testing their skills and equipment in adverse weather con- ditions. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a beginner, Winter Field Day is a great opportunity for all Hams to get
involved and have some fun.
We are currently seeking volunteers and participants to help us set up the radio room for the event and to assist with various tasks during the field day. If you are interested in helping out, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We welcome all levels of experience and appreciate any time and effort you can contribute.
We have a long history of contesting, and it’s time we start putting our name on the map again. By coming together and using our club radios, we can make a big impact on the event and have a great time doing it.
In addition to testing our equipment and skills, Winter Field Day is also a
great way to build camaraderie and strengthen the sense of community among Hams. It’s an opportunity to meet new hams, learn from experi- enced radio operators, and share your knowledge with others.
Mark your calendars for the last full weekend of January, and plan to join us at Station 50 for Winter Field Day 2023. The 24-hour operational period starts at 1900 UTC on Saturday, the 28th and ends at 18:59 UTC on Sun- day, the 29th. Stations may begin set- ting up no earlier than 19:00 UTC on Friday before. We will be operating under the I = Indoor category for this event. It’s sure to be a fun and reward- ing experience for all involved. We hope to see you there.
