Field Day June 22, 2024

Local Amateur Radio Clubs test their communication skills for the next natural disaster. When the next disaster strikes, hundreds of Amateur Radio (Ham radio) operators will be ready to assist local government and medical agencies in Santa Cruz County and beyond. These volunteers will demonstrate their radio and relaying skills on Saturday, June 22, in Aptos during their annual Field Day event.

The general public is welcome to attend and participate. Admission is free.

This year’s Field Day site is in the large open field behind Sevy’s (Severino’s) on State Park Drive in Aptos. It is the former site of Par 3 Golf Course and the three large aluminum antenna poles by Highway One. Follow directional signs from the entrance on Old Dominion Court, just off State Park Drive. We hope to see you there.

What is Field Day
