We are now preparing for ARRL Field Day, which will take place from 11am PDT on Saturday, June 26, 2021 through 1059am PDT on Sunday, June 27, 2021! If you are familiar with 2020’s Field Day rules and exceptions, you will (hopefully) be pleased to know that the 2021 Field Day rules have been carried over from last year! What this means is that we will be able to operate from our home or portably-deployed stations and still participate as a group. There is a remote possibility that a limited number of people may be able to participate from our station at Fire Station 1 but that is not yet determined; much will depend on the COVID-19 Pandemic restrictions that will exist then and that is something of a “moving target” depending on how well current and future mitigation efforts work. To find out more about ARRL Field, please visit their Field Day 2021 page. This site will be updated soon to include more information as it becomes available.
Our current focus is the response to the COVID-19 Novel Coronavirus outbreak, which is now a national emergency. The Culver City Coronavirus Update page is here.
Today, November 30, 2020, CCARES submitted formal comments to the FCC regarding their Notice of Proposed Rulemaking concerning license fees for the Amateur Radio Service. Those comments can be viewed here.
