KCARC will be participating in SPAR Winter Field Day 2015, on January 24th and 25th.  

"Since emergencies and natural disasters don't always happen in the summer, during Winter Field Day, frigid winds, icy limbs and bitter cold replace the thunderstorms and blistering heat of summer. In 2007 SPAR established a Winter Field Day event and invited all Amateur Radio operators to participate. . . . The object of the event is familiar to most Amateur Radio operators: set up emergency-style communications and make as many contacts as possible during the 24 hour period. The rules encourage as many contacts on as many bands and modes as possible, because during a real emergency, the most important factor is the ability to communicate, regardless of band, mode or distance."

KCARC's event will be held at the Kent County EOC, located at 911 Public Safety Blvd, Dover.

Our set-up will begin at 0800 on the 24th, and operations will begin at noon.  All are welcome.  Please dress for the weather. 

We hope you will join us!
