DARC ARRL Field Day 2023

ARRL Field Day is the single most popular HAM Radio on-the-air event held annually in the US and Canada and is open to all FCC license classes. On the fourth weekend of June of each year, more than 35,000 amateur radio operators gather with their clubs, groups or simply with friends and family to operate from remote locations or their home. Field Day is a picnic, a campout, practice for emergencies, an informal contest and, most of all, FUN!  This year the DARC will host an in-person event at the Johnston Outpost YMCA in Farmers Branch. The festivities and event officially start at 1pm central time June 24, 2023 but the W5FC DARC crew in true fashion will be there early at 9am Sat June 24, 2023 for setup. The DARC will be operating as 3A (Three Alpha) (section NTX) and will have 3 radios on the air during the event. Come join in the fun! Additional event/agenda details below.
