Inaugural Winter VHF-UHF Field Day

Date : 12 / 05 / 2008
Author : John Martin - VK3KM

The first Summer VHF-UHF Field Day was held in 1989, and then in 1998 it was joined by the Spring VHF-UHF Field Day. These events have become more popular each year, and activity has doubled over the last few years. So now these two Field Days will be joined by a third event - the first Winter VHF-UHF Field Day. This will be held over the weekend of June 21 and 22.

Operation in the Field Day can be for 24 hours or 8 hours, and there are sections for single operator and multi-operator stations. And if you don't feel like heading for the hills at this time of year, there is also a home station section.

The rules are very simple, so why not give it a go? The rules will be published in the June issue of "Amateur Radio" magazine, and full details are also available in the Contests section of the WIA web site. This includes the rules, a scoring sheet and other information about the VHF-UHF Field Day. And those dates again? June 21 and 22. Mark your calendar now!
