What is Field Day?
It’s a Contest
Some hams compete against others to see who can contact more people on the air, or even competing with themselves to see if they can do better than they did last year. The temporary, outdoor, battery-and- generator-powered setups that are a hallmark of Field Day present an extra challenge for hams who may be used to getting on the air from their home stations.
ARRL Field Day brings radio amateurs together for a weekend of teamwork, friendly competition, skill building, and time spent with old and new friends — both in person and on the air. Many ham radio groups organize picnics, cookouts, campouts, games, and other activities to make their Field Day operations even more fun.
What is the ARRL?

What is Amateur Radio?
Often called “ham radio,” the Amateur Radio Service has been around for a century. The worldwide community of licensed “ham” operators use the airwaves with every conceivable means of communications technology, from Morse code, to microphones, to bouncing signals off the moon. Ham radio operators can be any age, come from any background and all enjoy learning and being able to transmit voice, data, and pictures through the air to places near and far, without depending on commercial systems.
The amateur radio frequencies are the last remaining place in the usable radio spectrum where individuals can experiment with wireless communications.
