Our 10th annual Field Days Adventure!

Prepper Field Days is our biggest event of the year.  Come join us and experience the fun.  Field Days is a multi-faceted event that includes:

  • Amateur Ham Radio – Tied to the national Ham radio organization American Radio Relay League (ARRL), multiple Ham radios will be in use (see below for more information)
  • Camping – Test your preps away from home. Always fun!
  • Disaster Preparedness and Survival Training and Events (See below for more information)

Amateur Radio - World Wide Communications

For many decades, throughout the world, when emergencies occur, especially when power is interrupted, civilian amateur radio operators spring into action and provide invaluable and essential emergency communications.  Today, all governmental organizations have a volunteer emergency radio system built into their emergency plans and operations.

The American Radio Relay League (ARRL) is the national organization that, under law, oversees amateur radio operations in the US.  Once a year they hold their national “Field Day” event.  A huge number of amateur Ham radio operators, many of which are quite serious/dedicated, compete to see who can generate the most “Contacts” (People they connect with over the radio frequencies) or who can reach someone over the longest distance, and more.

NNPG, participates not to win prizes or achieve accolades, rather, our goal is to allow those with no Ham radio experience to learn about its capabilities, how easy it is to use and simply to have fun.  We enable you to actually use the radio to make contacts…it’s loads of fun!

Disaster Preparedness & Survival Training And Events

NNPG is dedicated to providing information and training to help you and your family in the event of a man-made or natural disaster.  So, come and learn in a fun environment as throughout the event there will be preparedness training, demonstrations and events.
