KNRC to Participate in Field Day 2023

ARRL Field Day 2023 Logo

Members of the Kansas-Nebraska Radio Club (KNRC) will be participating in the national Amateur Radio Field Day exercise, June 24-25, at VFW Post 7697, 601 N Railroad Ave, Glasco, KS 67445. Since 1933, ham radio operators across North America have established temporary ham radio stations in public locations during Field Day to showcase the science and skill of Amateur Radio. This 24 hour event is open to the public and all are encouraged to attend. Field Day Activities will begin with setup on Saturday the 24th at 10am.

The Kansas-Nebraska Radio Club was first organized in 1927 as the Night Owl Amateur Radio Club in Concordia, KS. Since that time, the club has expanded to include members from both Kansas and Nebraska & had 2 more name changes. Members of the KNRC will be using emergency power and our Emergency Communications Trailer for Field Day Events.

For more than 100 years, Amateur Radio — also called Ham Radio — has allowed people from all walks of life to experiment with electronics and communications techniques, as well as provide a free public service to their communities during a disaster or emergency, all without needing a cell phone or the Internet. Field Day demonstrates ham radio’s ability to work reliably under any conditions from almost any location and create an independent communications network. More than 35,000 people from thousands of locations participated last year in Field Day 2022 activities. 

Anyone may become a licensed Amateur Radio operator. There are more than 725,000 licensed hams in the United States, as young as 9 and as old as 100. And with clubs such as the Kansas-Nebraska Radio Club, it’s easy for anybody to get involved right here in North Central Kansas.

On June 12th, the Mitchell County Commissioners unanimously signed a Proclamation declaring June 18-24 as AMATEUR RADIO week in Mitchell County.

On June 19th, the Cloud County Commissioners unanimously signed a Proclamation declaring June 18-24 as AMATEUR RADIO week in Cloud County.

Kansas-Nebraska Radio Club Field Day June 26-27, 2021

Members of the Kansas-Nebraska Radio Club will be participating in the national Amateur Radio Field Day exercise, June 26-27, at VFW Post 7697, 504 Railroad Ave, Glasco, KS 67445. Since 1933, ham radio operators across North America have established temporary ham radio stations in public locations during Field Day to showcase the science and skill of Amateur Radio. This event is open to the public and all are encouraged to attend.

For more than 100 years, Amateur Radio — also called ham radio — has allowed people from all walks of life to experiment with electronics and communications techniques, as well as provide a free public service to their communities during a disaster or emergency, all without needing a cell phone or the Internet. Field Day demonstrates ham radio’s ability to work reliably under any conditions from almost any location and create an independent communications network.

With the pandemic last year, many clubs were not able to get together for Field Day or were limited in numbers. The ARRL allowed Club Members to “work from home” or remotely and have their contacts counted for the Club. We are looking forward to being able to gather again and show the community what we do.

“It’s easy for anyone to pick up a computer or smartphone, connect to the Internet and communicate, with no knowledge of how the devices function or connect to each other,” said David Isgur, communications manager for the American Radio Relay League, the national association for Amateur Radio. “But if there’s an interruption of service or you’re out of range of a cell tower, you have no way to communicate. Ham radio functions completely independent of the Internet or cell phone infrastructure, can interface with tablets or smartphones, and can be set up almost anywhere in minutes. That’s the beauty of Amateur Radio during a communications outage.

“Hams can literally throw a wire in a tree for an antenna, connect it to a battery-powered transmitter, and communicate halfway around the world,” Isgur added. “Hams do this by using a layer of Earth’s atmosphere as a sort of mirror for radio waves. In today’s electronic do-it- yourself (DIY) environment, ham radio remains one of the best ways for people to learn about electronics, physics, meteorology, and numerous other scientific disciplines. In addition, amateur radio is a huge asset to any community during disasters or emergencies if the standard communication infrastructure goes down.”

Anyone may become a licensed Amateur Radio operator. There are more than 725,000 licensed hams in the United States, as young as 9 and as old as 100. And with clubs such as the Kansas-Nebraska Radio Club, it’s easy for anybody to get involved right here in North Central Kansas.

Field Day 2018

On June 23rd, 2018, the Kansas-Nebraska Radio Club will be participating in the 2018 Amateur Radio Relay League Field Day. The KNRC will be set up at the Glasco VFW in Glasco, KS located just north of Spaulding Ave on Railroad Ave. We will have our Communications Trailer set up and it will be open to the public to see and ask questions. We will be setting up around 10am on the 23rd.

Every June, more than 40,000 Hams throughout North America set up temporary transmitting stations in public places to demonstrate Ham Radio’s science, skill, and service to our communities and our nation. It combines public service, emergency preparedness, community outreach, and technical skills all in a single event. Field Day has been an annual event since 1933, and remains the most popular event in Ham Radio.

As part of this event, the KNRC will be running on a generator and using temporary antennas. This is designed to simulate operation in an emergency and disaster situations. We will be making contacts with other Ham Radio Operators across the nation using different modes of making contact.
