Field Day 2020 Changes

In light of the massive jump in Covid-19 cases the board and field day team are changing the plan for field day operation.

We will not have stations operating from the Hurst ball fields. The RV station is cancelled.

We ask all members who have HF capabilities to operate from their QTH and we invite all members to join a club zoom session which will be up for the 24 hours field day operations are happening. The zoom session URL is: https://w5hrc.org/clublivefd2020

Per ARRL rule changes for 2020 members can submit their log entries and affiliate them with W5HRC when submitting. The ARRL will combine the entries and publish the result for the club. Heres the URL: http://www.arrl.org/temporary-rule-waivers-for-arrl-field-day-2020

Let’s all get on the air for field day starting at 1PM and operate through Sunday at 2PM .. Join Zoom for the Group Session and come and go while your operating.

Please pass this news to all other members.

Protect yourself from Covid-19 Catch you on the Air

VE Testing Temporarily Suspended

With the current events surrounding the Coronavirus, and many public and private places closing shop, we must temporarily suspend our VE test sessions.

The HurstARC members normally meet in the Hurst Fire Station #2 EOC/Training Room, but as a safety precaution, the City of Hurst has restricted access to this area. As with most other cities around the area, city venues are limited to essential personnel only. We do provide a service to the City, but unless we are operating in RACES conditions, we are not essential personnel.

We will be looking for a temporary home until the current health threat dies down, and we can return to the EOC again. At this time, we have determined that it is in the best interest of the club, examiners, and those wanting to test, that we suspend test sessions temporarily.

We do apologize for this inconvenience. If you have any questions or would like more information, you can email us at .

Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to getting back to normal soon.
