Amateur Radio Field Day June 28th Kualoa Regional Park

The annual Amateur Radio Field Day will be held on June 28, 2014 Saturday starting at 8 am at the Kualoa Regional Park. This year’s field day is organized by the Emergency Amateur radio Club (EARCHI.ORG) and the Koolau Amateur Radio Club (KARC.NET).

What is an Amateur Radio Field Day?

This is a free, national event sponsored by the ARRL (American Radio Relay League, the National Organization of Radio Amateur in the U.S.). Several hundred clubs nationwide participate in this event, which serves as a practical application of emergency operations, a fun contest, and as a public service event for Amateur Radio. Sometimes served agencies, such as National Weather Service (SkyWarn), the American Red Cross,  and others  join in with displays, etc.  For Amateur Radio operators, it is a fun get-together as well as an opportunity to polish communications skills vital in the event of  an emergency.

So come out and join us, whether you’re an old-time ham or newly licensed or just want to know more about the Amateur Radio Service, it’s a great opportunity to see HAMS in action.
