Air and Coast Defense Radio Field Day Sites

What is ARRL Radio Field Day? An nationwide Emergency Communications exercise disguised as a contest/cookout.

What was Coast Defense? The forts of the Coast Artillery Corps defended the harbors of the nation, with cannon and tethered controlled mines. The Coast Defense Study Group is the central exchange of their history.

Other Military ARRL Field Day Sites

Obviously Military or ex-Military posts (other than Harbor Defense / Coast Artillery / Coast Defense / Air Defense / Anti-Air Artillery included above) that were found on Master directory ARRL Locator - surely there are many more since I was mosly looking at coastline. To look up these there, copy and paste the callsign into input box there. (The Contests - Results - Soapbox section may have comments from prior years by callsign too.) Additions accepted, if post or ship is (or was) active in ARRL Field Day. (For Coast Artillery / ADA connected, will list above for other radio events, but this is not a Museum Ships on the Air event roster, as that is actively maintained by NJ2BB.)
