Field Day – Road Trip

This year the the Central New York Amateur Radio Association will be teaming up with the Hampden County Radio Association for Field Day.

We will be traveling to Agawam, MA to work in an exciting environment with an experienced team of Hams.

We will get the chance to operate four surperb towers with beams on 40, 20, 15 and 10 meters and dipoles for 80/75 meters.

There will also be a side-trip to visit the ARRL Hiram Percy Maxim Memorial Station giving our members a chance to see some of the wonderful history of Amateur Radio and perhaps operate under the W1AW call sign.

Interested members should contact CNYARA President, JJ Phillips ( for more information.
