News and Upcoming Events

Field Day is Saturday, June 23, and Sunday, June 24, 2018

Come join us at SARA's annual ARRL Field Day operation. We will be operating from our traditional location, at the observatory at the Stamford Museum and Nature Center. The entrance to use is just up the street and opposite from 148 Scofieldtown Road, Stamford, CT.

ARRL Field Day is the most popular on-the-air operating event in amateur radio. Each June, tens of thousands of amateur radio operators set up their radios outdoors for a public demonstration of our service. Field Day is part educational event, part competition, part picnic, part public relations event -- and ALL FUN!

We will be presenting a 24-hour demonstration of our emergency communications capabilites, including three complete, off-the-grid radio stations, each able to communicate across the country and around the world.

You can see, hear, and participate in nationwide communication using voice, Morse code, and digital modes, and learn about emergency preparedness, public service, antennas, and radio equipment. Anyone who wants to can get on the air and talk to hams across the country.

We will be setting up on Friday, June 22, starting at about 9am and running to dinner time. Set up continues Saturday morning at 9am, and the on-air Field Day event itself begins at 2pm on Saturday, running for 24 hours and ending at 2pm Sunday.
