Simi Valley, CA.

American Radio Relay League (ARRL) "Field Day":  This Amateur Radio Emergency Communications exercise has been held on the beautiful grounds of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library & Museum for the past several years on the fourth full-weekend of June.

For the event, members of the Ventura County Amateur Radio Society (VCARS) will be joined by members of the Simi Settlers Amateur Radio Club (SSARC) and other licensed Amateur Radio operators ("Hams"), all operating under the Special Events call-sign of  ”N6R" (honoring former President and Mrs. Reagan).  The annual 24-hour "Field Day" exercise (officially starting at 11 AM on Saturday, June 22nd), promotes public awareness and provides training experience for local Amateur Radio operators.  By its conclusion (at 11 AM on Sunday, June 23rd), event participants at the Library will have established Amateur Radio Communications with thousands of other clubs, groups, and individuals throughout North America and adjoining countries, most of whom were also operating under simulated emergency conditions.

During the "Field Day" event, visitors to the Reagan Presidential Library are welcome to inspect the portable radio stations and antennas, setup in various places around the external grounds of the Presidential Library.  Feel free to ask questions, listen to contacts being made with other operators, and perhaps even try your hand at making a contact yourself!

In light of the continuing COVID-19 related challenges, event participants will all be fully-vaccinated, and will be following any applicable CDC, state, and local Health Care guidelines to protect the participants, their families, and all who choose to come to the beautiful grounds of the Reagan Presidential Library.
