Field Day is always held on the 4th full weekend in June.
It is no surprise COVID-19 has also affected our club participation in this year's Field Day.
We have secured the Corkery Community Centre 3447 Old Almonte Rd. for this years Field Day. Social distancing rules and a limit of 10 people at a time will be maintained. We will have plenty of room and indoor washrooms at least.
For this year ARRL Field Day 2020 rule waivers will allow us to aggregate our separate station scores.
2) In addition, for 2020 only, an aggregate club score will be published, which will be the sum of all individual entries indicating a specific club (similar to the aggregate score totals used in ARRL affiliated club competitions).
Ordinarily, club names are only published in the results for Class A and Class F entries, but the temporary rule waiver for 2020 allows participants from any Class to optionally include a single club name with their submitted results following Field Day
Directions coming from Ottawa:
