Don't forget amateur radio Field Day on June 24th and 25th. Field Day is the big event sponsored by the American Radio Relay League where clubs and individuals all over North America set up, usually outside or in situations using emergency or "off the grid" power and try to make as many contacts on the radio as possible. We show off all the different ways we can use the radio including voice, Morse code, digital modes, satellites, and the International Space Station. Most importantly, we show off amateur radio's science, skill, and service to the community.
The West Georgia Amateur Radio Society will be operating from the Carroll County EMA's Mobile Communications Unit. Stop by and check out a really cool vehicle, and also see what amateur radio is all about. We can even help you get on the air and try it yourself. You don't need a license with us there helping you!
