Field Day has been an annual event sponsored by the American Radio Relay League ARRL since 1933. Each year for a 24 hour period during the last weekend of June amateur radio operators throughout United States and Canada try to make as many contacts as possible by radio from remote locations with other amateur radio operators.

Operations during Field Day are intended to simulate conditions that would exist in an emergency situation. Stations are set up on remote temporary locations using generators, solar panels and temporary antennas.

The Associated Radio Amateurs of Long Beach (ARALB) are committed to local community service through the use of amateur radio.  ARALB usually operates as an 6A class station, “Six independent Stations simultaneously on different bands.”
