SPARC will be participating in the ARRL Field Day on June 23 -24th, where they will be set up at Spring Lake Park for a 24-hour period from 2 PM on the 23th to 2 PM on the 24th.  Field Day, while “fun” for hams, it is really an exercise to hone skills and define areas of improvements as well.

SPARC encourages the South Plainfield Community to visit and learn about amateur radio. Residents will be able to partake in the operation of amateur radio equipment.  Approximately forty, local area amateur radio operators, have been invited to join SPARC at Spring Lake Park.
