The Orange County Amateur Radio Club, OCARC, will host Field Day at the Walter Knott Elementary School at 7300 La Palma Avenue in Buena Park, CA. The school FD site is immediately to the West of Knotts Berry Farm Park. Everyone is welcome to attend. Amateur radio operators are encourage to bring their families. If you're a ham just visiting the area on business or vacation, you're welcome to join us.
Please bring a copy of your ham license to FD to allow you your full license privileges.
Here are two maps of the Field Day site:

The location of the OCARC FD on the school grounds can be reached by entering from La Palma into the schools far right driveway. See the annotated FD map. The school grounds are behind the school buildings and are to the South.
OCARC is currently scheduled to operate in the 9A class, meaning there will be 9 transmitters running full time on emergency power. We will also have one VHF/UHF and a GOTA (Get On The Air) station that are not included in the nine. The GOTA station is for new amateur operators who have not worked in the HF bands and for visitors who do not currently have an amateur radio license. Any operator that makes 50 GOTA contacts over Field Day earns the club bonus points!
Technician class operators, this is your opportunity to get HF in your blood :) If you are looking for inspiration to upgrade, this is your chance. Anyone can work the HF bands at a Field Day site with a control operator present!
Stations making up our 9A class:
We will be using the Club call, W6ZE, for our general
The GOTA station will be using N1AB call for its operations.
The club will provide the following meals (Menu to be posted shortly):
