Paso Robles Amateur Radio Club participating in “Field Day”



The event will take place starting at 11 a.m. Saturday at the Templeton High School campus

– Members of the Paso Robles Amateur Radio Club will operate 24 hours a day on June 26-27 as they participate in the American Radio Relay League Field Day. Field Day will be held at the Templeton High School Superior Soccer Field starting at 11 a.m. on Saturday.

Field Day simulates a national emergency in which radio operators rapidly deploy stand-alone radio stations powered by generators, solar panels and batteries. Radio contacts are established for points with other stations across the United States and Canada during a 24 hour period of operation. This provides an opportunity to test equipment and refine emergency operating skills.Paso Robles Amateur Radio Club participating in

Field Day is also an event to invite the public to observe or participate in operating activities from the air while being coached by experienced operators. Young participants are encouraged to register and earn additional club bonus points. The club will also offer amateur radio license testing for those who are ready to jump into this great hobby or upgrade an existing license.

LicenseTesting is available on Saturday June 26 at 10 a.m. For more information, contact: JT at, or Dave at Visit the club on Facebook: Paso Robles Amateur Radio Club.
