Don’t let those winter doldrums keep you locked up in the house… get out and play some radio!! Winter Field Day runs from from 1900 UTC (2pm EST) Saturday 1/27 to 1900 UTC (2pm EST) Sunday 1/28. Disasters are unpredictable by nature and can strike when you least expect them.

In addition to successful contacts on HF and VHF, the scouts earned their radio merit badges through instruction given by the Club. The "field day" site was set up at Our Lady of the Valley church in Wayne.( PHOTOS )
