Winter Field Day Association Announces 2016 event

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 a 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 WFDA is open to all licensed amateur radio operators worldwide.

If you are serious about emergency communications as we are; we welcome you to join us for our yearly event. We are sure that you will find this event a pleasant change and challenge to that of a normal summer time field day.


Congratulations are in order for two of our associate members

They are 

Bill Frye who is now KM4NNY

Parker Eakes who is now KM4NNW

They will now become full members of the SMRC with all privileges for the remainder of this year without any associated dues increase per SMRC Bylaws


Please let these new hams know how proud you are of their accomplishment

FCC Goes Paperless, ARRL Predicts Licensing Headaches

FCC “Paperless” Amateur Radio License Policy Goes into Effect on February 17

(Originally posted on 28 Jan 2015)

Starting February 17, the FCC no longer will routinely issue paper license documents to Amateur Radio applicants and licensees. The Commission has maintained for some time now that the official Amateur Radio license authorization is the electronic record that exists in its Universal Licensing System (ULS), although the FCC has continued to print and mail hard copy licenses. In mid-December the FCC adopted final procedures to provide access to official electronic authorizations, as proposed in WT Docket 14-161 as part of its “process reform” initiatives.
