The ARRL organized Field Day objective as follows:
To work as many stations as possible on any and all amateur bands (excluding the 60, 30, 17, and 12-meter bands) and to learn to operate in abnormal situations in less than optimal conditions. Field Day is open to all amateurs in the areas covered by the ARRL/RAC Field Organizations and countries within IARU Region 2. DX stations residing in other regions may be contacted for credit, but are not eligible to submit entries.
Every year WCARES participates in field day using it as an opportunity to train, socialize and brush up on HF Operation, CW and Digital Modes.
See the ARRL website for more information about Field Day.
