The Georgian Bay Amateur Radio Club

To start planning our Field Day event, we need to decide on stations we want to operate, how many antennas we need to support that goal, radio equipment, emergency power, food, computers, logging software, porta potty and tents if required etc.
We also invite the general public to join us so we should also be ready with interesting things to talk about, brochures and perhaps demonstrations.


Field Day is about experimentation too. If there is a homebrew antenna you would like to try, or you have an idea about how we can do something different, this is a great opportunity to share your vision with the club and give us time to plan accordingly to make it happen. There is plenty of room and help at the site.

This event is open to all amateurs and the public. 
Club membership is NOT required to take part in Field day.

The form below is for the field day committee to get an idea of attendance, who will be bring what, what we can expect for the Saturday pot luck and what extra items we need to think about. This is a great opportunity for new hams or anyone to get their feet wet and join the fun. Bring the family, everyone is welcome.

The Super 8 motel is within walking distance for those out of town and restaurants are close by.
