Winter Field Day January 30/31 2021

 Winter Field Day Association (WFDA) is a dedicated group of Amateur Radio Operators who believe that emergency communications in a winter environment are just as important as the preparations and practice that is done each summer but with some additional unique operational concerns.

 We believe as do those entities of ARRL Organizations like ARES & RACES that maintaining your operational skills should not be limited to fair-weather scenarios. The addition of Winter Field Day will enhance those already important skills of those who generously volunteer their time and equipment to these organizations. This is why WFD is open to all licensed amateur radio operators worldwide.
 Disasters are unpredictable by nature and can strike when you least expect them. WFDA's goal is to help enhance your skills and ready you for all environmental conditions found in the US and Canada during the spring, summer, fall, and winter Preparedness is the key to a professional and timely response during any event and this is what local and state authorities are expecting when they reach out to the emergency service groups that offer their services.

 If you are as serious about emergency communications as we are; we welcome you to join the yearly event! We are sure you will find this event a pleasant change and challenge to that of a normal summertime field day.

Boyd County ARES currently do not have any plans to participate in this exercise however, Local Club The River Cities Amateur Radio Association (RCARA) will be set up in Armco park. More Details can be found on their Facebook Page by clicking here.
