Winter Field Day is sponsored by the Winter Field Day Association as a fun preparedness event. While PARC does not have an officially organized group that participates, you can grab some of your ham buddies and form your own “team” or operate solo – indoors or out! Check the rules for suggested band frequencies and log format. Exchange information, entry categories and “class” are also spelled out.

Winter Field Day Association (WFDA) is a dedicated group of Amateur Radio Operators who believe that emergency communications in a winter environment is just as important as the preparations and practice that is done each summer but with some additional unique operational concerns.

We believe as do those entities of ARRL Organizations like ARES & RACES that maintaining your operational skills should not be limited to fair weather scenarios. The addition of Winter Field Day will enhance those already important skills of those that who generously volunteer their time and equipment to these organizations. This is why WFD is open to all licensed amateur radio operators worldwide.
