Secondly, Mr. Weber said the ARRL, the national association for amateur radio, wants clubs and other groups participating in the communications exercise to display their work in a place easily accessible to the public. Members of the Cornerstone Amateur Radio Club (K2FCR) will host field exercises at the North Hoosick Fire Department, 22106 Route 22. This event is open to the public.

At 11 a.m. Saturday there will be amateur radio license exam testing. "One of the ways is to get youth out to get them involved in making contacts with other contacts and also doing an educational activity".

A year ago the CARC charted new territory using social media to live stream activities from their clubhouse. "We have some new faces and we're excited".

Waupaca County Amateur Radio Emergency Services will hold a Field Day in Waupaca's South Park June 24-25. They will also be providing information for those interested in amateur radio and this type of public service in addition to citizen preparation for emergencies and disasters.

Magnitude 6.8 natural disaster recorded off Guatemalan coast
According to Wikipedia, the quake killed 13 people, but a Los Angeles Times headline from the time period said it killed 17. The event was promptly deleted from the USGS website, but screenshots of the page made their way around social media.


This is the single most popular on-the-air event held annually in the US and Canada for amateur radio enthusiasts, often called "ham" radio.

The clubs take to the field with generators, portable antennas and equipment, and then try to reach as many different stations as they can in a 24-hour period. "In that time, it's grown into a worldwide community of licensed operators using the airwaves with every conceivable means of communications technology". The Nashua club will set up this weekend at Hollis-Brookline High School for his year's event.

The department on Route 22 is a visible, central location, Fox said.

According to the BCRC, there are more than 725,000 licensed amateur radio operators in the U.S. Jones said amateur operators represent all walks of life, and his club boasts a membership that ranges in age from the 20s to 90.
