Many radio amateurs are preparing for the winter edition of the ARRL Field Day. The customary and traditional date for the ARRL operating event usually falls during the final full weekend of June, but some amateur radio operators are taking to the "field" for the colder weather of January. This year, the Winter Field Day is set for 27-28 January 2018, with rules similar to the June ARRL Field Day exercise.
In this podcast from "EVERYTHING HAMRADIO, we see how members of the Chesapeake Amateur Radio Service are preparing for field operations in the dead of winter. The video offers a lot of valuable suggestions and practical survival tips for winter operations. These guide lines will be especially helpful for radio amateurs operating in northern latitudes. For those of us in semi-tropical areas, such as Hawaii (my location), the demands are less rigorous. The idea is to have fun safely while improving our ability to operate in a variety of climatic conditions.
