The annual ARRL Field Day is 23-24 June 2012. This is the event where amateur radio operators turn out and test their radio equipment, often accompanied by contests, food, camping, and so forth. It is my personal goal for the LCSA to be organized enough for a test deployment and communications test with ARES (Amateur Radio Emergency Service) as of this date. Field Day events are also a great way to meet local amateur radio folks, take tests, buy/sell/trade equipment.
The nearest event registered so far is in Camdenton, MO (Lake of the Ozarks ARC), contact firstname.lastname@example.org, according to the Field Day Locator.
