…as in baseball, the stats are a fun part of the game.
Field Day results are out!
This year we scored 26% more points than last year! This was in no small part due to our emphasis this year on outreach with things such as educational activities, youth involvement, supported agency involvement, elected officials’ involvement, and promoting amateur radio to the wider public. Aside from enjoying ourselves, and having a great barbecue, these were the aspects of FD that we stressed and which also, incidentally, accrued points and account for this year’s higher score.
Conejo Valley residents are invited to see and participate in Ventura County’s largest public emergency communications exercise of the year on June 25th and 26th.

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 29, 2022.
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 DX Hams. Don’t let those winter doldrums keep you locked up in the house. 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.
