Amateur Radio Field Day
Field Day is now a twice a year event. Amateur Radio in the field! Field Day is an emergency operations exercise. However, it also raises awareness of Amateur Radio by the public and its value to the community in the event of disaster. The Summer event is one of the largest ham radio events of the year. The Winter exercise is a relatively new event. Come out, join in the fun, support the club and learn new skills.
January 30-31, 2021: EVENT CANCELLED due to COVID restrictions. Location for the 2021 Winter Field Day
will be at the same location as last year just off of N. Can Ku Road on Camano Island.
The Winter Field Day Association (WFDA) sponsors this chilly emergency communications exercise each year.
Purpose: To foster Ham camaraderie, field operation, emergency operating preparedness, and just plain on the air, outdoor fun in the
midst of winter for American, Canadian, and DX Hams. Don’t let those winter doldrums keep you locked up in the house... get out and play
When: Winter Field Day runs for 24 hours during the last full weekend in January each
year from 1900 UTC (11am PST) Saturday to 1900 UTC (11am PST) Sunday. Station set-up may commence no earlier than 1900 UTC (11am PST)
on the Friday before. Station setup may consume no more than 12 hours total. How & when you schedule/spend those 12 hours is up to you.
Bands: All Amateur bands, HF, VHF, & UHF except 12, 17, 30 and 60 meters. Modes:
Any mode that can faithfully transmit the exchange intact without a conversion table...

SCARC Electronics Swap Meet and Hamfest
SCARC Board Meeting
Board Meetings are regularly held 7:00 PM on the first Thursday of each month. Virtual via Zoom.
US Islands Contest
Great opportunity for the club to work together and compete. The contest objective is for non-island stations to work as many North American Islands as possible in a relatively short period (only 15 hours) on the 4th Saturday in August beginning at 1200Z. For Island stations, the goal is to work other islands and as many other stations as possible. Precise rules to be determined. In 2015, 2016, 2018 and 2020, the club operated from Camano Island (K7IOC's QTH). HF Mobile stations to act as rovers are especially encouraged to participate in support of the club. Does anyone have a boat? If you are interested in operating from any of the many islands in the greater Puget Sound region, please let us know early so we may include you in our operating plans. Contact Lee - K7IOC for more details. Also, see our US Islands page.
SCARC Officer Elections in September
Every September at the Club meeting, an election is held to select officers for the coming year. The effective date begins immediately following this meeting. Nominees may be submitted at the meeting. However, nominations by the previous meeting are encouraged.
