Ham radio operators from the South Jersey Radio Association in Southern New Jersey will be participating in a national amateur radio exercise located at Savich Field in Marlton NJ.The South Jersey Radio Association Field Day operation will take place at Savich Fields 530 Main St. Marlton, NJ 08053.

The 2024 ARRL Field Day will be held on June 22–23, 2024, starting at 1800 UTC on Saturday and ending at 2059 UTC on Sunday. The event takes place on the fourth full weekend of June every year. The theme for 2024 is "Be Radio Active" and encourages amateur radio operators, or "hams", to get involved.

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.

During this Field Day Event SJRA will be operating in all modes including HF,CW, SSB, Digital and a Satellite demonstration. Most importantly SJRA will be operating a full functional GOTA Station “Get on the Air”  The GOTA Station is an opportunity for Novice licensees, newly licensed amateurs, other generally inactive licensees, and non-licensed persons to experience first-hand the fun of amateur radio by allowing them to GET ON THE AIR (GOTA).

Hams from across North America ordinarily participate in Field Day by establishing temporary ham radio stations in public locations to demonstrate their skill and service. Their use of radio signals, which reach beyond borders, bring people together while providing essential communication in the service of communities. Field Day highlights ham radio’s ability to work reliably under any conditions from almost any location and create an independent, wireless communications network.

Ham Radio operators all over the country will also use the radio stations set up in their homes or taken to their backyards and other locations to operate individually or with their families. Many hams have portable radio communication capability that includes alternative energy sources such as generators, solar panels, and batteries to power their equipment. 

Among the tenets of the Amateur Radio Service is developing and practicing skills in radio technology and radio communications, and even contributing to international goodwill. Hams range in age from as young as 9 to older than 100. A self-study license guide is available from ARRL: The ARRL Ham Radio License Manual ( and for Kindle (
