Amateur Radio enthusiasts gather for Field Day

Amateur Radio (ham) operators across the country will leave the comfort of their home-based radio shacks for a weekend of public demonstration and emergency preparedness activity called Field Day. The event is designed to test operators skills in setting up and operating radio communication equipment in situations where electrical power is limited or unavailable. The idea is to simulate the conditions that can occur during man-made or natural disasters, such as a hurricane, earthquake, or flood. The event is sponsored by the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), the national association for Amateur Radio. The first Field Day took place in 1933.

During Field Day, operators set up radio transmitting and receiving equipment in local parks, at shopping malls, on hilltops and in backyards, and get on the air using generators, battery or solar power to run their equipment. This type of exercise, along with the operators dedication to public service, allows them to step in and help emergency officials and relief organizations when disaster strikes. Cell phones, the Internet and other communications technologies have yet to replace what Amateur Radio operators can do. They have a long track record of getting the message through when all other systems fail! Children and youth are encouraged to attend with their parents or guardians to see this pastime in operation!
