LA4O Field Day 2012

This year Oslo Group of NRRL cooperated with the Norwegian Maritime Museum and Norwegian Radio Historical Association. Because we did use the Norwegian Maritime Museum’s area at Bygdøynes we chose a more public-oriented Field Day than we’ve had arranged in recent years.

The audience had the opportunity to try operating a ham radio station on the air, a quiz and and to test out ARDF. Inside the museum Norwegian Radio Historical Association had set up a special exhibition of ancient ship radio receivers.

On Saturday there were a lot of visitors looking at Bygdøynes. Above our heads, it was a spectacular air show in conjunction with the Norwegian Military Air Force 100 year anniversary (click here for pictures from the air show). An air show, nice weather and amateur radio – can it get any better?

The Amateur Radio Field Day aims to promote the recruitment of new radio amateurs and strengthen cooperation between Norwegian radio amateurs. A Field Day also provides training in how to operate portable stations independent of the mains voltage from the public electricity grid and permanent antennas.
