West Essex Amateur Radio Club - Arc²
ARRL Field Day Event

Saturday June 22, 2024 - 2pm ET to Sunday June 23, 2024 - 12pm ET
209 Fairfield Rd, Fairfield, NJ (Essex County)


Come out and visit the West Essex Amateur Radio Club along with Arc² at the American Red Cross builiding in Fairfield, NJ (Essex County) when our amateur radio operators participate in the most popular on-the-air even held annually in the U.S and Canada. Field Day is a time where many aspects of amateur radio come together to highlight our many roles. Field Day has a varierity of purposes, many clubs use it as a social event while contesting, and others will pratice their emergency communcations. 

WEARC and ARC² will be welcoming amateur radio operators, the general public, distinguished guets and more throughout the day. We will be running a Guests-on-the-AIr station so those who are not licensed operators may sit with one of our members and operator a radio and make contacts around the world. We look forward to this event each year and now in collaboration with ARC² we have a site that provides our members and visitors safety in the event of any foul weather that may come our way. 

If any Boy Scout troops are interested we will have an on-site merit badge counselor during the event. Please co-ordinate with CJ Melhorn, contact info below.
