American Radio Relay League (ARRL) - Field Day:  This Amateur Radio Emergency Communications exercise has been held on the grounds of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library & Museum for the past 18 years, always on the fourth full-weekend of June.

For the event, the Ventura County Amateur Radio Society (VCARS) will be joined by members of both the Simi Settlers Amateur Radio Club (SSARC) and the Southern California Contest Club (SCCC), all operating under the Special Events call-sign of ”N6R" (specially chosen to honor former President and Mrs. Reagan).  The annual 24-hour Field Day exercise (starting at 11 AM on Saturday, June 22th), promotes public awareness and provides training experience for local Amateur Radio Operators (Hams).  By its conclusion (at 11 AM on Sunday, June 23th), 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.

Members of the general public are welcome to peruse the radio stations and radio-related exhibits spread throughout the external grounds of the library, listen to the varied communications, learn about this interesting hobby; and learn how Amateur Radio and its licensed operators ("Hams") are ready to step in to help, in the event of disaster or civic need.
