As an annual tradition the Amateur Radio community holds its annual field day event on the last weekend in June. This event showcases the spirit of ham radio in a friendly competition but more importantly prepares them for emergency operation by setting up stations in remote areas with nothing more then backup generatorsfor power etc…
It is nice to see the local media supporting this event by providing some great coverage in local community newspapers…
Here are links to three clubs covered by the media
Peel/Mississauga clubs coverage
York Region club coverage
Why not contact a club next year and plan to attend one of these great events and get a taste of a great hobby.
