Field Day is an annual demonstration of how ham
radio can respond to a catastrophic emergency. We
set up antennas and stations in public areas to show
our ability to communicate with thousands of other
similar stations around the country. Scouts watch as
Loren makes contacts with other stateside stations
participating in this competitive Field Day event.
Scouts building an actual antenna
which will be used moments later.
Bud explains to scouts how
the magic of radio works.
Come visit from noon Saturday until noon
Sunday June 24 as we operate continuously, under
emergency simulation, for 24 hours. Our multiple stations
will be locate at the Sportsman’s Club ‘above’ the
Fairgrounds. Entire Scout groups are encouraged to visit.
