Welcome to the Marple Newtown Amateur Radio Club

ARRL Field Day is the most popular on-the-air event held annually in the United States and Canada. Field Day takes place on the fourth full weekend in June. More than 35,000 radio amateurs gather with their clubs, groups or simply with friends to operate from remote locations.

The Marple Newtown Amateur Radio Club will this year be holding its Field Day event at Ridley Creek State Park. We'll be in Campsites 13 and 14. The club's call sign for Field Day is K3MN.

Antennas are launched into the trees with the help of this massive air cannon fabricated by our very own member Jim Goldman, W3JG. See the air cannon in action here.

We will be in Campsite's 13 and 14. Follow the signs all the way to Picnic Area 12 then pass through the gate. Stay to the right following the road to a tarmac parking area. You should see an opening on the right pointing to the campsites. You will have to walk from here. The site is about 300 yards down this trail passing a bathroom facility along the way. The trail breaks out into the southwest end of the field. 

There are a few dollys available to help cart your gear to the site.
