Troop 44

Pack 44 will participate in this year's AARL Day, Saturday, June 27 from 1:00 to 5:00 PM. It will be held at a private Mundelein residence. If interested email g56reader@aol.com for directions.

Field Day is ham radio's open house. Every June, more than 40,000 hams throughout North America set up temporary transmitting stations in public places to demonstrate ham radio's science, skill and service to our communities and our nation. It combines public service, emergency preparedness, community outreach, and technical skills all in a single event. Field Day has been an annual event since 1933, and remains the most popular event in ham radio.

We will follow the Illinois Phase 4 restrictions. The use of face masks and social distancing remain in effect for Phase 4. Phase 4 also allows for up to 50 people to attend gatherings.
