North Hills Radio Club

NHRC Field Day 2018

ARRL Field Day is the most popular on-the-air event held annually in the US and Canada. On the fourth weekend of June, more than 35,000 radio amateurs gather with their clubs, groups or simply with friends to operate from remote locations.

All are welcome to join members of the North Hills Radio Club as they participate in the 2018 ARRL Field Day.  It doesn't matter what you're there for, the hot dogs, to watch the setup ( or you can help? ), to watch radio contacts being made, or to make radio contacts yourself, you're invited to come out and have a grand time.

Setup starts around 8am on Saturday June 23, with radio operations starting at 11am and continuing around the clock until 11am the next day.

Our location this year is at Negro Bar, a unit of the Folsom Lake SRA.  This is next to the New Rainbow Bridge across the river from downtown Folsom along Greenback Ln, between the east end of Madison Ave and Greenback where they intersect, and Folsom-Auburn Rd.

Drop in visitors during Field Day are welcome.  Radio talk-in into Negro Bar will be on the K6IS repeater (145.190, -, 162.2).  Please use the Talk-In if you're coming out.   Negro Bar is a State Park fee area.  We have parking permits that we can run up to you at the road before you enter.  Otherwise there will be a $12 fee to enter.
