Field Day: Amateur Radio Outdoors

Here’s a video I put together for the Montrose (Colorado) Amateur Radio Club.

Field Day is the biggest ham radio event of the year! The Montrose, Colorado, Amateur Radio Club put on its event atop Sunset Mesa to the west of downtown Montrose, Colorado. The point of Field Day is to encourage hams to become proficient at communicating in emergency situations. As you can see, the group is running on generator power under field conditions. Oh, the other point? Eat, chat, and enjoy each other’s company!

Listen to the dialog too—some is quite funny. I didn’t add any music so it was easier to hear the dialog. I made each clip very short—most don’t exceed a few seconds. Videography and editing by Dave Casler, amateur callsign KEØOG.

    Nice documentary, Dave. I have many fond memories of Field Days with the Gunnison Valley ARC.
