Save The Date! CVARC Winter Field Day is January 28th

Conejo Valley Amateur Radio Club will hold Winter Field Day at Dos Vientos Park, 4801 Borchard Road, Newbury Park, CA 91320, from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM on Saturday, January 28, 2023. 

The purpose of Winter Field Day is to foster ham camaraderie, field operation, emergency operating preparedness, and just plain on the air, outdoor fun during winter for American, Canadian, and international radio amateurs.  Get out and play some radio!

The Conejo Recreation and Park District will not turn on the power to the electrical outlets at Dos Vientos until 12:30, so be prepared to power your rig on an emergency power source for at least the first two hours of Winter Field Day.

Winter Field Day is conducted in the form of a contest.  At our event, individuals will set up their own radios and antennas and operate using their own call signs.  The exchange when making QSO’s is: “(Call Sign,) Class, Category and ARRL Section ID.”  For the most part, stations at CVARC Winter Field Day event at Dos Vientos Park will use “(Call Sign), One, ‘O’, Santa Barbara.”  The “One” indicating you are transmitting one signal at a time, the letter “O” indicating you are operating outdoors and “Santa Barbara” is our ARRL Section.  CW stations will use “(Call Sign,) 1, O, SB.”

Here’s a link to the Winter Field Day rules.
