Mini-Field Day is an opportunity to break out your Field Day gear, test it and make sure you’re prepared for the next ARRL Field Day, which will be held June 24-26, 2022 – just 39 weeks from today (save the date!)
It’s also a social event where we can gather with like-minded Hams and enjoy a pleasant afternoon in the park.

The driveway into the field is located at 378 W Potrero Road, Westlake Village. (34.139531, -118.881485) Our site is located on the south side of W. Potrero Road, between Trentwood Drive and Stafford Road.

CVARC has several special amateur radio initiatives planned for Winter Field Day 2021, to be held January 30 and 31. The COVID-19 crisis makes it impossible for us to gather in large groups as we have in the past, but we are attempting to recapture some of the camaraderie and fellowship among hams in other ways by making the following options available for those who choose to participate. Nothing here is compulsory. The idea is to have some fun. Feel free to participate in whatever interests you.
Martin Hickey-AJ6CL distributed a survey to operators from the various clubs across the county to collect numbers of QSO’s made in order to highlight the accomplishments of hams in Ventura County. This informal survey is independent of the scores that operators submitted to the ARRL as official Field Day entries. Official Field Day results are published in the December issue of QST.
