The largest event hosted by Big Thunder Amatuer Radio Club is the annual Field Day. Field day is held in conjunction with the ARRL's field day events on the fourth full weekend in June. Field day is an opportunity for ham radio clubs to test their abilities to setup operating radio stations in the outdoors; this is a test run for a setup that might be used in the case of natural disasters such as tornados, hurricanes, and the like.
BTARC is hosting their 2017 Field Day on June 24th at noon through June 25th at noon. Field Day will be located at Edwards Park, 15339 Rt 76 in Poplar Grove. This is located just north of Route 173 on Route 76. Please feel free to download this flyer for additional infomation.
