Come join the DARC for Winter Field Day 2023 January 28, 2023. This will be a fun outdoor SHINE ONLY event. The DARC will be back at Custer Park in Richardson. Winter Field Day 2023 is January 28 & 29, 2023 but the DARC will only operate Sat Jan 28, 2023 Plan on 11:00am for setup and will wrap things up by 6pm that day. WFD2023 will get underway at 1pm central time. The last minute change is due to the park in Irving was under construction with sewer work and unbearable sewer gas in the area. Please NOTE the new location is at Custer Park in Richardson – 701 W Renner Rd, Richardson, TX 75080.
The purpose of Winter Field Day is to foster HAM camaraderie, field operation, emergency operating preparedness, and just plain on the air, outdoor fun in the midst of winter for American, Canadian, and DX HAMs. Don’t let those winter doldrums keep you locked up in the house… get out and play some radio but be safe about it!! Winter Field Day is the last full weekend in January of each year and runs for 24 hours 1900 UTC Saturday to 1900 UTC Sunday.
