Field Day 2023 Photos

Field Day 2023 took place on the weekend of June 24. We had a great event even though a storm that came through about midnight tried to slow things down. Many of our members have shared the photos below showing just some of the the happenings at the 24-hour event.

We’re still crunching the numbers on contacts and bonus points. We’ll post the results when everything has been assembled.

Field Day 2023 – Everyone Invited!

Come join us for ARRL Field Day. Everyone is invited even if you don’t have a ham radio license! Our members will have all of the radios, antennas, microphones and oh-so-many cables all set up and ready for you to get on the air.

Or, maybe you want to talk with one of our members about how we’re communicating with people all over the country and world with an antenna that’s less than 50′ long. It’s really incredible.

The event starts at 1pm on June 24 and runs for 24 hours. Join us at 1406 N. Plum Grove Rd. Schaumburg IL and see what we’re up to.

More information is available on our 2023 Field Day Page including operator sign-up forms for our members.

Special Thanks to those who participated in the MS Walk Public Service Event on Sunday, May 7th.

We got started early in the morning, before 8:00 AM to get organized and to find our locations for deployment and where we could park our cars without having to walk 3 miles to get to and from our locations.

We needed to be on our stations early, because we needed to drive on the course that participants would use once the Walk got started. Then there was a wait for the official start, but finally they started walking.

Some signage misunderstanding had many of the three mile walkers walking the 1 mile route, and then going back out to get the other two miles. This made for confusion as there were at least 3 groups or people who had been identified as the ‘last walker’. Eventually, the real ‘Last Walker’ was identified, and all completed their desired course.

However, the walk was completed, with no injuries or losses, so, I guess that means it was successful. The following SARC Members participated in support:

Darryl KB9RHR
Dennis KD9HIK
Howard KD9WSV
Scott N9SLA
Bill W9WEM
Doug W9YFC

Again, Special thanks to all who participated in this event.

The next event will be Field Day. We need LOTS of support for that event ! ! One week later is the Independence Day Parade in Hoffman Estates.

Public Service is an important part of Ham radio.
