OVARC will once again be participating in Field Day, the biggest radio event in the US.  

OVARC will be operating as a 3F station which means we will operate 3 transmitters from an official Emergency Operations Center.  In addition to the 3 primary transmitters we will also operate a Get On The Air (GOTA) station and a VHF station.

Field Day Logging Software

Field Day Logging Software - N1MM+

OVARC uses N1MM+ software for logging our contacts, reporting dupes,  and calculating our score in real time.  If you are going to operate Field Day and have not used this software we suggest you download it and try it out before Field Day weekend.  

You can download the software here - http://n1mm.hamdocs.com/tiki-index.php

Look under the Files tab for the full install.  This software only runs on Windows XP or later.
