TARC 2017 Field Day at Fox Lake Park
Saturday June 24th
Public invited to visit and see Ham Radio in action!

Titusville Amateur Radio Club holds its Field Day exercise each year at Fox Lake Park in pavilion number 2.

Field Day in the United States, is typically the largest single emergency preparedness exercise in the country for Ham radio operators, with over 30,000 operators participating each year. The dates this year are June 24th - 25th2017. Please come out and visit with us to see what ham radio and Field Day are all about.

Since the first ARRL Field Day in 1933, radio amateurs throughout North America have practiced the rapid deployment of radio communications equipment in environments ranging from operations under tents in remote areas to operations inside Emergency Operations Centers (EOCs). Operations using emergency and alternative power sources are highly encouraged, since electricity and other public infrastructures are often among the first to fail during a natural disaster or severe weather.
