SATURDAY June 23rd Events

Technician License Exam 6:00pm


The FCC established amateur radio as a voluntary, non-commercial, radio communications service. It allows licensed operators to improve their communications and technical skills, while providing the nation with a pool of trained radio operators and technicians who can provideessential communications during emergencies.

The idea of field day is to make contact with as many stations around the country and world as possible on any and all amateur bands and do so in abnormal situations and less than optimal conditions. A premium is placed on developing skills to meet the challenges of emergency preparedness as well as to acquaint the general public with the capabilities of Amateur Radio.
