Fauquier Amateur Radio Association (FARA) invites you to attend the annual American Radio Relay League Field Day 24 hour event at Crockett Park beginning 2 p.m. Saturday June 25 to 2 p.m. Sunday, June 26. Witness a multi-transmitter amateur radio station making two-way contacts with other stations around the world using legacy voice, classic morse code, and several modern and efficient digital modes. One station will operate entirely from solar power. Visitors will have the opportunity to operate a radio at a guest station provided by the STEM focused local 4-H Ham Radio Club. If you are ready to take your amateur radio test, a testing session will occur noon Saturday just before the event. Amateur radio is a fun way to engage in public service, experiment with technology, and build friendships spanning the globe. Stop by the FARA Field Day and find out how you can get involved. Admission is free.
