Field Day – Don’t Forget 6 Meters

Don’t Forget 6 Meters

Remember, Field Day is a non-adjudicated operating event and not a “full speed ahead” contest. It is also not an HF-only event — all amateur radio bands above 50 MHz may be used during the event.

This includes 6 meters, which often offers significant propagation enhancements in the summer months around Field Day weekend, to help you make contacts. The band is available to amateurs holding a Technician-class license or higher. If you have an HF/VHF/UHF multi-mode transceiver, try making contacts using 6 meters for SSB, CW, or digital contacts. You won’t need fancy beams or large antenna arrays. A simple vertical or dipole antenna will allow you to experience operating on the “Magic Band.”
