The ARRL Programs and Services Committee (PSC) has adopted two temporary rule waivers on May 27, 2020. for the 2020 ARRL Field Day event.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many radio clubs have made decisions to cancel their group participation in ARRL Field Day this year due to public health recommendations and/or requirements, or to significantly modify their participation for safe social distancing practices. [These] temporary rule waivers allow greater flexibility in recognizing the value of individual and club participation regardless of entry class. 1
Field Day is held on the 4th weekend in June; in 2020 that is 1:00PM CDT Saturday, June 27th, to 3:59PM CDT Sunday, June 28th.
