Field Day 2021
is in the Books

US Representative Scott Perry, Pennsylvania 10th District, meets with Field Day Operators


ARRL Field Day for 2021 has ended.  COVID 19 concerns and restrictions prevented the club from meeting at Shaffer Park, but some intrepid Cumberland Amateur Radio Club members ventured to Fred KC3KPD’s home in Dillsburg.

The Honorable Scott Perry, PA 10th District, US House of Representatives, stopped by to observe our Field Day operations and to share his perspective on matters of interest to us, as his constituents.  Congressman Perry seems very attentive to amateur radio operators and antenna restrictions.


Club members installed a dipole antenna and operated on the 20, 40 and 80 meter bands using phone, 20 and 40 meter WSJT-X modes digital, passed traffic using 2 meters and HF.  Andrew AF3I took advantage of a well-timed International Space Station pass and conducted a demonstration on receiving SSTV images.

Fred, thank you for hosting our event!
