Winter Field Day - January 26-27, 2019

Its not too early to start planning for Winter Field Day 2019. Winter Field Day is coming up on January 26-27, 2019 and is an opportunity to hone your winter outdoor operating skills.

Purpose: To encourage emergency operating preparedness in the winter.

When: Winter Field Day runs for 24 hours during the last full weekend in January each year from 1900 UTC (2pm EST) Saturday to 1900 UTC (2pm EST) Sunday. For 2019, the dates are January 26th and 27th. On all the bands and modes, except the WARC bands.

Winter Field Day rules:

We are back! The Winter Field Day Association brings you Winter Field Day.

Join Us on Saturday, January 26 at 1900z (2:00 PM EST) until Sunday, January 27 at 1900z (2:00 PM EST). 

We have changed the rules so now it will be similar to ARRL Field Day. For example the exchange will be WX4ET 1O TN, for the Multi Ops. It will be by the number of stations, for example WX4TN 10O TN.

Operate solo, in pairs, or as a team (multi) from home, a remote location, indoors, or outdoors... it's up to you! Earn bonus points for outdoor operation, non-commercial power, and remote locations. Winter Field Day is a perfect opportunity for your club or team to put together an outing.

Check us out on the web at and we are also on Facebook at

If you post on Twitter and/or Facebook, use the hashtag #WFDA19

Hope to hear you calling CQ WFD on the bands on Winter Field Day 2019 !!!!
