The Foothills Amateur Radio Society is participating in the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) 2023 Field Day event on Saturday June 24th and Sunday June 25th.

This event is open to the public and visitors are welcome from 11 AM until 9 PM on Saturday, June 24th. Also on Sunday June 25th from 7 AM until 11 AM. Field Day is an opportunity to see Amateur Radio in action and even participate. Learn about ham radio by participating.

We plan to have a Get On The Air (GOTA) station where new hams and unlicensed people can operate an amateur radio station.
