Many Utah section clubs are conducting Field Day this year and the public is invited to participate.  You don’t need an Extra class license or even a ham license to get on the air when you visit a Field Day site.

Below is a list of the Field Day sites we know of and most of them will have licensed coaches ready to help.  Most of the larger clubs are also operating a special station called a “GOTA” (Get On The Air) station that will coach and guide the inexperienced ham.  Contact the club’s Field Day contact for more information.
