A History of Field Day – 1933 to 1998

This is a story wrote 19 years ago, and ran in the December edition of QST magazine. It reviews the history of field day, its evolution and interestingly enough how both Field Day and the amateur radio hobby itself have transformed over the years. Hopefully someday we will find an article just as intriguing covering from 1999 to today.

Field Day is ham radio's open house. Every June, more than 40,000 hams throughout North America set up temporary transmitting stations in public places to demonstrate ham radio's science, skill and service to our communities and our nation. It combines public service, emergency preparedness, community outreach, and technical skills all in a single event. Field Day has been an annual event since 1933, and remains the most popular event in ham radio.
