2021 ARRL Field Day Event

 West Essex Amateur Radio Club's 2021 ARRL Field Day Event

Thanks to all that showed up to make this event a memorable one. Special Thanks to all my Friends from the Montclair University Repeater Group! You guys are awesome. More pictures and videos to come.  

We had a great turnout of Club Members for this years Field Day.  We were able to utilize the grounds at the Rockpoint Community Church, in North Haledon, NJ.  Several of the Pastors from the Church, as well as some of the parishioners came by to pay us a visit during our 24 hour activation.  We had several Law Enforcement Officers also stop by to see if we needed anything and said to call if we needed them for anything.  We also had North Haledon Mayor Randy George stop by and pay us a visit.  He was thoroughly impressed with our setup and the service that we provide.  He also expressed interest in using us for any future projects with the town.  

 Many came early to setup, and get everything ready.  Some were local hams that heard we were having a Field Day in their neighborhood.  Others were part of the local repeater group.  The Montclair University Repeater 443.450  We had 3 operators stay the full 24 hours.  And others came throughout the day to help.  Even though the weather was rough on Saturday, we made it through.  Lessons learned on what to improve on for next year.  Several of the Club Members operating were Rookies.  And testimonies from them concerning their first Field Day was that this definitely solidified them in the Hobby.

We Encourage any, and ALL to next years Field Day Event.  You won't be disappointed.  73's.
