Winter Field Day 2013

It's that time of year again!  Once again ECOA Emcomm groups will be taking part in the SPAR Winter Field Day.

To quote the SPAR website: "Not only during Field Day in June, do the bands come alive with improvised signals proving the ability to respond to emergencies. Since emergencies and natural disasters don't always happen in the summer, during Winter Field Day, frigid winds, icy limbs and bitter cold replace the thunderstorms and blistering heat of summer.

In 2007 SPAR established a Winter Field Day event and invited all Amateur Radio operators to participate. The event was repeated in 2008 and was considered a success, so it was then designated an annual event to be held the last full weekend each January".

The rules for the event can be found on this LINK.
