I’m looking forward to participating in the first ever International Field Radio Event this weekend. The event is sponsored by the Field Radio Facebook group and runs from 0000Z to 2359Z on May 28th, 2016. Field Radio is an international group of amateur radio operators who practice and enjoy portable operations.
The goal of the event is simple: Get out in the field and contact other Field Radio members, while letting other hams know about the group. More than 200 hams from around the world have signed up to take part. Registered Field Radio members will be exchanging ID numbers assigned for the event. You don’t need to be a member to join in, though. Feel free to work any of the portable stations calling, “CQ IFR.”
I haven’t yet decided where I’ll be operating on Saturday but I will likely be out operating from 1300Z to 1800Z. I will most likely be on 40, 30, 20, and 17 meters CW.
So, if you hear any of the International Field Radio event participants on Saturday, give them a call. I’m sure many of them will be operating from some interesting locations.
