CQ CQ CQ Field Day this is Whisky Four Victor Lima Delta… W4VLD….
These were calls given out over the amateur radio bands from VARC Field Day operators. During the twenty-four hour event over 900 contacts where made with stations all over the country making this one of the most successful VARC Field Day events in recent history. Several amateurs came to operate but others came to enjoy barbeque, fishing or to just enjoy each others company. Still others who are not presently amateurs came to learn more about “Ham Radio.” Field Day is a national event sponsored by the ARRL and is held during the last week end each June.
