Winter Field Day Hosted by PARC!




It’s time again to join the fun of another Winter Field Day! Playground Amateur Radio will be hosting at the clubhouse for you to come on down and make some contacts!

Our Station Trustee and Amateur Extra, Ed (AA0EU), and our club Vice President, Bob (KK4SSM) are looking forward to seeing you in downtown Fort Walton Beach (17 First St SE) starting at 1pm on Saturday, January 27th. The clubhouse will be open throughout the 24-hour event, so please come help yourself to some contacts and comradery in our shared hobby!

We hope to visit with plenty of Hams from all along the Emerald Coast, and are looking forward to sharing our stations with you! As always, we will have hot coffee ready and snacks are always welcome in our meeting room!

Speaking of stations, maybe you’d like to set up your own equipment outside to make some contacts? Playground Amateur Radio Club is happy to accommodate!

Please contact me at with any fills!

***Unfortunately, we have discovered some technical issues with our club station antennas, causing some unnecessary noise while trying to make contacts, so we regrettably will not be open 24 hours tonight. If you come by while we are still here, welcome! but we will be closing down soon to join in other clubs’ FD activities. Regularly scheduled Sunday Pile-Ups with the Playground Amateur Radio Club! will commence tomorrow (Sunday) at 3pm! Hope to see you there! 73, KQ4FRB***
