Winter Field Day is dedicated to Amateur Radio Operators who believe that emergency communications in a winter environment is just as important as the preparations and practice that is done each summer but with some additional unique operational concerns.
If you are serious about emergency communications we welcome you to join us for our yearly event. We are sure that you will find this event a pleasant change and challenge to that of a normal summer time field day.
Georgian Bay Amateur Radio Club members, especially new to amateur radio had a great time building and setting up the Tilted Terminated Folded Dipole antenna and actually see it working flawlessly. Band conditions were not the greatest at the start but improved over time and some contacts were made. We didn't break any records but all had a good time with lots to eat and a rag chew session exchanging "as always" useful wisdom. These pictures are from the 2016 event held at the QTH of Adam VE3IZS.
