Field Day is one of the premier amateur radio contests in the United States. It is held on the fourth full weekend in June, and lasts approximately 24 hours.

There are a number of different categories in which Field Day contestants can compete. These include A (groups of three or more operators, usually clubs), B (one or two people), C (mobile stations, usually attached to vehicles), D (home stations running on regular wall outlet power), E (home stations running on emergency power, such as batteries, wind, or solar), and F (Emergency Operations Centers).
