Amateur Radio Field Day: A Fun and Educational Event for Everyone
Amateur Radio Field Day is an annual event that will take place this year on June 24th and 25th at Brackenridge Park and Campground. It is a chance for amateur radio operators (hams) to come together and demonstrate their skills in emergency communications. Hams from all over the country set up temporary stations in parks, schools, and other public places to make contacts with other hams and the general public.
Field Day is more than just a contest. It is also a great opportunity to learn about amateur radio and how it can be used in emergencies. Hams demonstrate their ability to set up and operate portable stations, use emergency power sources, and communicate with other hams over long distances. They can also provide information about amateur radio licensing and how to get involved in the hobby.
Field Day is a fun and educational event for everyone. It is a great way to learn about amateur radio and how it can be used to help others.
Here are some of the benefits of participating in Amateur Radio Field Day:
- You can learn about amateur radio and how it can be used in emergencies.
- You can meet other hams and make new friends.
- You can have fun operating a radio (supervised by a licensed ham) and making contacts with other hams around the world.
