Amateur Radio serves the public at no charge with backup and emergency communications, weather condition reports and situational awareness for other emergency responder groups. Hams do not depend on A/C power, the Internet, or existing communications networks in emergencies. Their stations can be moved to other locations as needed.
Remember.... when all else fails, Ham Radio is still there!
Ham radio operators from all over North America will be contacting each other while under simulated emergency conditions. Demonstrations of transmitters, receivers, antennas and emergency power supplies. Celebrating Amateur Radio Week, sponsored by ARRL. Even if you don't have a ham radio FCC license these members can get you on the air so you can experience the fun of ham radio. A good way to see and use lots of different radio equipment and meet local members. Boy Scouts Radio merit badge opportunity. Free parking, free admission. All ages welcome. Saturday and Sunday, June 25-26, 2022. Tom Hauer, K0YA, 319-551-9788.
