Once again this year, we held a joint Field day with the West Island Amateur Radio Club (WIARC). This year's joint Field Day returned to an old location, at Centennial Park in Beaconsfield, QC.

This year we used the callsign VE2ARC, operating one HF (shortwave) stations (Class 1A), along with the satellite station and a 6m (50Mhz) station.

Thanks to Batteries Expert Ile Perrot for their sponsorship by providing both lead-acid and lithium-iron-phosphate batteries to power our Field Day station.

Visitors included Global TV which carried a story about Field Day or their news broadcasts on June 23, 2019.

Thanks to all of the amateur radio operators who made the event successful and the those who stopped by to see what we were doing.
