    Directions to Field Day

    The 4x4 Ham Field Day site will be near the same location as we've used for the last several years. Located on the west end of FR300 (Mogollon Rim) off FR218 (Milk Ranch Point). Please check back to this thread before departing as there is still a possibility we have to move due to forest closures or other circumstances.

    Approximate GPS Coordinates
    N34 26.390 W111 23.200

    Everyone is coming from a different location, so use the Google Maps link below to determine best route. From the west valley and Phoenix area, you will probably want to take I-17 north through Camp Verde. Mesa and east valley folks will probably want to take Hwy. 87 through Payson.

    Click here for Google Maps and enter your starting point on the left.

    From the intersection of Hwy. 260 and Hwy. 87, it is approximately 2.5 miles to the FR300 road turn off. Look for the brown FR300 sign and turn right. Once you are on gravel, it is approximately 2 miles to the Field Day site. We will have signs out from this point. About 100 yards from Hwy. 87 on FR300, you want to keep right onto FR218 and go across the cattle guard. After a couple miles, there is another intersection where you will want to turn left. The Field Day site is 100 or so yards past the left turn. Call us on 147.52Mhz simplex.

    100 yards after turning off Hwy 87 on FR300, take FR218A to the right.



    After a couple miles on FR218A, there is a right turn to go out Milk Ranch Point. Turn LEFT.



    Just after the left turn, there is a Sharp Curves sign and our Field Day site is past that on the left side.

    Directions above are accurate for 2017 Field Day location. This will be our 5th year in the same location.
