Due to the pandemic, last year’s rule change of allowing home stations to participate,
count for points, and choose a Club to have their scores reflected in, will still be in effect.

And exactly like last year, the Club will have a slimmed down, COVID aware,
outdoor event at Fort Washington State Park.

All precautions and warnings as determined by the Commonwealth of PA will be in effect.

PLEASE make smart personal choices based on your own personal situation.

(There will be future Field Days to participate in.)

On the fourth full weekend each June, radio amateurs from all over the US and Canada, and in other parts of the world as well, take their equipment into the great outdoors to operate away from power mains. The idea is to practice setting up and operating under emergency conditions. Participants set up efficient temporary stations and contact as many other Field Day participants as possible. Although it is a practice effort for future emergency operations, Field Day is, above all, fun; you can't help but enjoy the challenge of working cooperatively with your group to compete against perhaps 100,000 other hams who are also braving the elements to attain the same goal.

Phil-Mont participates in Field Day every year from Fort Washington State Park in Fort Washington, PA.


Our operating location is in the group tenting area of the park.
Everyone is invited to come visit the Field Day site at any time during the activity.

Unlicensed persons, those with Technician Class licenses, or anyone who has not been on HF for over a
year can operate on the HF bands in a low-stress environment at our Get On The Air (GOTA) station under
the supervision and direction of an experienced coach.

Licensed operators are of course welcome to participate to whatever degree they feel comfortable.
Licensed operators are required to bring their license or a photo-copy in order to act as a
control operator of any Field Day station.
