What is Field Day?
Field Day is an operating event sponsored by the ARRL whose purpose is to demonstrate the communications ability of the amateur radio community in simulated emergency situations. To learn more about Field Day and the OARC, please see the Field Day information page.
OARC Field Day plans for 2023 CHANGED!
We have some bad news, and we have some good news. The good news is that we have been able to secure a Field Day site. It will be at 3818 Harvestmoon Drive in Osgoode (see map below). We have accepted the kind offer of Dorothy and Paul Coverdale (VE3ICV) to use their home with a spacious lot. The bad news is that the Corkery Community Centre, where we have been located for the last few years, is a construction site as the building is being rebuilt. It promises to be an excellent location for 2024, but for 2023 it really is not useable.

There are certain ramifications of operating from someone’s home. We will have to operate as a Class D (mains power) or an E (emergency power, i.e. portable generator). Also, as we do not get a free VHF/UHF station, we will have to decide whether we will be either 2 or 3 transmitters. These decisions will have to be made in the next few weeks. As they are made, they will appear here on OARC.Net.
All this amounts to some significant changes to the OARC FD in 2023.
Volunteers of all sorts needed!
Nonetheless, we are looking for volunteers to help set up, tear down, and operate. Use this link to the sign-up sheet.
