Field Day is just around the corner! ARRL Field Day is the single most popular on-the-air event held annually in the US and Canada. On the fourth weekend of June of each year, more than 35,000 radio amateurs gather with their clubs, groups or simply with friends to operate from remote locations. Field Day is a picnic, a campout, practice for emergencies, an informal contest and, most of all, FUN! It is a time where many aspects of Amateur Radio come together to highlight our many roles.
The Red River Radio Amateurs has launched an emergency communications webpage and corresponding email lists. This webpage contains all RRRA emergency communications related information.

This webpage can be found at www.rrra.org/emergency_communications as well as under the Quick Links menu.
