2017 Feild day – Blue Mountain Park.
From 11 a.m. Saturday June 24, 2017 to 11 a.m. Sunday June 25, 2017, the Burnaby, Coquitlam, and New Westminster, amateur radio clubs will be conducting a joint annual Field Day at Coquitlam’s Blue Mountain Park, located at 975 King Albert Avenue. Map
The public is welcome to stop by the east side of the Park 1 block North of King Albert Avenue on Porter Street (just north of the tennis courts) to watch local radio amateurs of all ages as they set up and operate radio equipment to make contact with other operators from the Lower Mainland clubs, as well as the thousands of local clubs across North America that will be participating in this years activities.
Be sure to stop by the “Get on the Air” (GOTA) station, and experience the thrill of talking with someone in a distant town or city, using nothing but a short wave radio transceiver.
