For Immediate Release
Field Day Operations
Amateur Radio Operators all over the country including Seneca County will be participating in an annual Field Day exercise to promote Amateur Radio and to exercise their capabilities for operation under abnormal and emergency conditions. Hams as we are called will attempt to contact as many participating Amateur Radio stations as possible during the 24 hour event beginning at 2 PM on Saturday June 26 through 2 PM on Sunday June 27.
Local Amateurs will set up this year at Hedges Boyer Park at the lower level across from the YMCA in both the Lion and #6 shelters. The public is invited to come out and be a part of this exciting annual event. A special station will be in operation to allow non-licensed visitors to get on the air and experience the thrill of making contacts with other amateurs all over the country. Local amateurs will also be operating several forms of specialized equipment to facilitate data communications between stations and to exercise many of our capabilities to assist the public in a disaster situation.
The Seneca Radio Club along with the Seneca County Amateur Radio Emergency Service invite you to stop out and see us during the fourth weekend in June at Hedges Boyer Park. We would love to show you the fun and excitement of Amateur Radio and how easy it is to become a Ham. Amateur radio is open to all ages.
