Rains ARA Field Day 2017 will be June 24-25. It will be a joint event with the Hopkins County Amateur Radio Club at the Rains County EOC, located at 200 Industrial in Emory. To find us, go to the intersection of Hwy 69 and FM 515 (Brookshires Grocery on the corner) and look south. We will be under that 200' tower, across the street from the concrete plant.

Setup will start around 8:00 on Saturday morning with the contest starting at noon. We are planning a meal for club members, guests and anyone else that shows up to visit at 2:00. Additionally, we plan a joint club meeting 3:00 and a testing session at 4:00.

We will be running two contest stations and a "Get On the Air" station will be available for anyone, licensed or not, to try their hand at the HF contest experience. The contest is 24 hours, from noon Saturday until noon Sunday. Rains ARA will be monitoring the 146.92 repeater and the NCTC system as well.

Note: the Rains County Leader published an article about Field Day.
