This year, San Jose RACES will be participating in the 2023 ARRL Field Day as a 2A (club portable) station in Houge Park (

We will be participating along with amateur radio operators in both US and Canada to practice our emergecy response capabilities, and to invite the public to see one piece of the amateur radio experience.

San Jose RACES will be operating four stations: HF, HF Digital, GOTA, and VHF,  along with an information booth for the public.  

We will need captains for each of the four stations to help plan and supervise the setup/operation/teardown of each station. Others will be needed to help setup/teardown the station along and everyone is invited to visit and operate one of our stations throughout the field day period.  

Stop by anytime or reserve a slot by emailing!
