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.
