LMARS Field Day


Field Day is always held on the 4th full weekend in June. This year, it will be held from June 22-23.

Field Day time again! Join the Amateur Radio operators of the Lake Monroe Amateur Radio Society as they move their radio equipment into the field of Central Winds Park in Winter Springs for a 24-hour test of amateur radio communications under emergency conditions, using only power provided by generators, batteries and solar panels!

The excitement starts at 2PM on June 22 and runs continuously until 2PM on June 23. There will be communications with other hams around the world using Single Sideband voice operations on a number of different frequencies. Additionally, we'll be using Morse Code and digital operations while communicating with hams through amateur radio satellites. You can get hands-on experience yourself while operating an actual on-the-air amateur radio transceiver and learn how you can become a ham radio operator.

The Lake Monroe Amateur Radio Society provides mentoring for eager new hams to learn their new hobby. We have a free, upcoming class to train new hams and provide FCC testing to get their amateur radio license.

Come out and see it all happen at Central Winds Park in Winter Springs starting on June 22. Enter the park off SR 434 and follow the posted signs to the LMARS Field Day site. Hope to see you there!

Every June, more than 40,000 hams throughout North America set up temporary transmitting stations in public places to demonstrate ham radio's science, skill and service to our communities and our nation. It combines public service, emergency preparedness, community outreach, and technical skills all in a single event. Field Day has been an annual event since 1933, and remains the most popular event in ham radio.
