Field Day 2019 at Joe Palaia Park
Field Day 2019 is on the way.
It’s a contest, a readiness drill, a science fair, a publicity exercise and a social event all rolled into one. It’s the focal point of amateur radio events. And this year our challenge is to volunteer and participate on site with the club. And when you go to Field Day 2019, bring someone with you and convince them that amateur radio matters.
This year the GSARA will operate Field Day from Joe Palaia Park, located at the intersection of Deal Rd. and Whalepond Rd. in Ocean Township, NJ.
This is a beautiful, open park and will provide the ideal venue to conduct a successful and memorable 2019 Field Day.
New this year will be more operating stations including: CW/SSB/Digital/Fusion and GOTA (Get On The Air) Station operating from several separate tents.
We plan a Public Relations campaign to introduce the public to Ham Radio. There will be a meet and greet table where the visitors will be invited to visit the site, ask questions, look around and even get on the air. Also taking advantage of the Field Day activities to use for advancement requirements will be Boy Scout Troop 124.
Let’s demonstrate that amateur radio benefits everyone.
