Combined Radio Exercise (CRX)

Hello all,

KI5OFN here.

We had some requests at the meeting last night to send out the slides we used for the Combined Radio Exercise (CRX) presentation so here they are!! I appreciate all the input and ideas for it as well. 


We will continue to mold it and give updates on progress as we move closer to the fall.  I liked the idea of a workshop on it, and some testing on different bands while we develop this. 

Also, I am leaning towards 2nd weekend in October. That should be the 8th.  It’s not usually too hot or cold at that time and maybe we can do the 1st event weather permitting. Thank you all!

Field Day

ARRL Field Day – 2022 June 25th

ARRL Field Day is the single most popular on-the-air event held annually in the US and Canada. On the fourth weekend of June of each year, thousands of radio amateurs gather with their clubs, groups or simply with friends to
operate from remote locations.

Field Day is a picnic, a campout, practice for emergencies, an informal contest and, most of all, FUN!

It is a time where many aspects of Amateur Radio come together to highlight our many roles. While some will treat it as a contest, other groups use the opportunity to practice their emergency response capabilities. It is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate Amateur Radio to the organizations that Amateur Radio might serve in an emergency, as well as the general public. For many clubs, ARRL Field Day is one of the highlights of their annual calendar.

The contest part is simply to contact as many other stations as possible and to learn to operate our radio gear in abnormal situations and less than optimal conditions.

But despite the development of very complex, modern communications systems — or maybe because they ARE so complex — ham radio has been called into action again and again to provide communications in crises when it really matters. Amateur Radio people (also called “hams”) are well known for our communications support in real disaster and post-disaster situations.

We use these same skills when we help with events such as marathons and bike-a-thons; fund-raisers such as walk-a-thons; celebrations such as parades; and exhibits at fairs, malls and museums — these are all large, preplanned, non-emergency activities.

All are welcome to participate, watch and learn about this hobby

Due to covid concerns we will update this site as the date approaches
