NEMCo RACES Participating in ARRL Field Day

NEMCo RACES will be participating in the 2019 ARRL Field Day.  ARRL Field Day is on June 22-23 from 11:00am to 11:00am (24 hours)

Field Day will be held at Fire Station 51 in Kenmore, WA and we will be participating as an EOC – Class F. 

The public is invited to come by and see how Field Day works.

We recently learned that the Washington State Emgerancy Management has decided to hold their 5th Saturday Drill on the same Saturday so we will also be participating in that event at the same time.

We will be doing High Frequency radio operations which will include Voice and Digital modes.  We will also be operating using our FM equipment.

We will be passing traffic messages using Winlink to other EOCs and other Field Day Operators around the US.

We are looking for additional Ham Radio operators to help with radio operations during the event.

You can contact Scott Green at if you are interested in participating or have any questions.

The next RACES meetings are on January 2 and February 6, 2019 and are open to the public. Meetings start at 7pm and usually last until 9pm.
Members are encouraged to attend meetings to get important ham radio training as well as take advantage of opportunities to play radio. Visitors will discover what a RACES team does, and maybe even catch the ham radio bug!
