Winter Field Day Association (WFDA) is a dedicated group of
Amateur Radio Operators who believe that emergency communications in a winter
environment is just as important as the preparations and practice that is done
each summer but with some additional unique operational concerns.
We believe as do
those entities of ARRL Organizations like ARES & RACES that maintaining
your operational skills should not be limited to fair weather scenarios. The
addition of Winter Field Day will enhance those already important skills of
those that who generously volunteer their time and equipment to these
organizations. This is why WFD is open to all licensed amateur radio operators
unpredictable by nature and can strike when you least expect them. WFDA’s goal
is to help enhance your skills and ready you for all environmental conditions
found in the US and Canada during the spring, summer, fall and winter
Preparedness is the key to a professional and timely response during any event
and this is what local and state authorities are expecting when they reach out
to the emergency service groups that offer their services.
If you are serious
about emergency communications as we are; we welcome you to join us for our
yearly event. We are sure you will find this event a pleasant change and
challenge to that of a normal summer time field day.
Note: FT-8 is not a Form on communication with the WFDA
