SPAR Winter Field Day…from a listener

I have not yet been through all 16 podcasts, I am on number 9 headed to 10 so you may have mentioned this. If so please ignore me.

No, I missed it!? I just read about it earlier this week…

Have you mentioned SPAR Winter Field Day on your podcast? My club, The Palestine/Anderson County Amateur Radio Club, (
participates most every year including this year. It’s the last full weekend of January. It’s a whole lot of fun and more casual than ARRL Summer Field Day.
The website is here:

The 2015 Winter Field Day will be held from 1700 UTC (12:00 noon EST) Saturday January 24, 2015 through 1700 UTC (12:00 noon EST) Sunday January 25, 2015. The object of the event is familiar to most Amateur Radio operators: set up emergency-style communications and make as many contacts as possible during the 24 hour period. The rules encourage as many contacts on as many bands and modes as possible, because during a real emergency, the most important factor is the ability to communicate, regardless of band, mode or distance.

We look forward to participating
