The annual Winter Field Day event is held the last full weekend of January (28-29 2017). Much like it’s Summer-time cousin, Winter Field Day (WFD) is focused on ham radio operations in less than ideal emergent conditions. Emergencies happen everyday, and usually when the weather isn’t cooperating! WFD like the ARRL Field Day gives Amateur Radio Operators a chance to hone their skills in those challenging environments while enjoying the camaraderie of the hobby.
Open to ALL Amateur Radio Operators around the Globe, WFD continues to see growth every year! Tom Phelps, WD8MBE, and WFD Association looks forward to the event and encourages anyone with questions or comments to please visit their WFD website at www.winterfieldday.com .
It doesn’t have to be snowy in your neighborhood to participate, the key is to Get On The Air for Winter Field Day! It’s a World-Wide Event open to All Amateurs who wish to join in the fun!
Winter Field Day Association (WFDA) is a dedicated group of 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.
Winter Field Day is January 28-29 2017. For further inspirations we’ve linked some past WFD videos below. I look forward to hearing you on the air for Winter Field Day!
