2018 Bill Foster Memorial Field Day will be held at the Central PREOC

The Kamloops Amateur Radio Club will host the 2018 Bill Foster Memorial Field Day at the Emergency Management BC Central PREOC at 1255-D Dalhousie Drive ( or see attached map for information on parking, etc).

VE7UT will be operating as 3F BC (3 stations from an official EOC) for the first time ever!  Daytime we will be able to operate simultaneously on 10/15/20, 40 and 80M; and in the evening we can operate simultaneously on 20, 40 and 80M. We will also have a GOTA station (VE7KAZ) and two VHF stations active, an information table, and some educational activities are planned during Field Day.  We can definitely accommodate and would welcome a CW operator, so bring your straight key or paddles, or use ours!

Setup will begin at 1700 hours local time Friday, and VE7UT will operate from 1100 PST (1800 UTC) Saturday, June 23 to 1100 PST (1800 UTC) Sunday, June 24.

The annual Field Day Potluck Supper will be held on Saturday evening, so please bring something and join us for dinner.

We invite visitors, other amateur radio operators, members of the public, elected officials, etc. to stop in and learn about amateur radio and emergency management, or to just spend some time on the air with us this Field Day.

For more information please contact Myles, VE7FSR at or by phone at (250) 318-5150.
