Temporary Rule Waivers Announced for 2020 ARRL Field Day

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
