LA4O Field Day 2011

The purpose of the Radio Day’s Field Day is to promote recruitment of new radio amateurs and to strengthen the cooperation between Norwegian radio amateurs. This year, the Oslo group had its Field Day at Bygdøy Sjøbad.

A Field Day provides good training in portable operations, regardless of power supply from the public power grid and permanent antennas. This is a good emergency communication training. The radios are operated in many modes and with different antennas.

The Field Day event has also included a competition element between the participating groups. In addition to radio communications, you get points for the activities and the media attention the group is capable of creating.

There was great attendance and good atmosphere during the event that lasted from Saturday morning to Sunday morning.

The social is important on a Field Day and in the evening we cost ourselves a BBQ.
