National Amateur Radio Field Day this weekend

By The Staff

The Los Alamos Amateur Radio Club will host a National Amateur Radio Field Day event Saturday and Sunday at the North Mesa Picnic Grounds off North Mesa Road in Los Alamos.

Over 35,000 amateur radio operators (hams) across North America will operate from noon Saturday to noon Sunday in order to make radio contacts during this 24-hour event. 

The LAARC will be using temporary antennas and alternative power sources, such as generators, batteries and solar panels, to practice emergency response capabilities.

The public is invited to participate in this demonstration of amateur radio operations and readiness in providing communications when infrastructure, like commercial power, is not available. 

The public can also operate the radios and make contacts with other ham radio operators across North America.
