Local Amateur Radio Club to Participate in Field Day Exercise

Local Amateur Radio Club to  Participate in Field Day Exercise

June 16, 2011

With the weather events we have seen occur in Joplin, Sedalia, Boston and other parts of the country, everyone has heard of Amateur Radio playing a rose in communications and volunteer work with the various public service agencies. You may now see what “ham” radio can do.    

Raytown Amateur Radio Club will be participating in the annual Field Day exercises June 25 and 26. This will display for the public what Amateur Radio is capable of doing if the need arises. The Club will set up and operate a large radio station for the two day event which demonstrates their capabilities to communicate under emergency circumstances.

The Raytown Club will set up and operate stations that use voice, morse code, VHF, and satellite communications. The event is sponsored by the American Radio Relay League and the National Association for Amateur Radio. Stations from all over North America will participate. They are graded according to how many other stations they are able to make contact with and how well they demonstrate Amateur Radio’s capabilities.

The Raytown Club normally ranks very high, in the top 25 stations, out of 2,000 to 3,000, that will participate nationally. The Raytown operation is the largest in Missouri and the entire Midwest. The Raytown operation will be in the field behind Raytown City Hall, 10000 E 58th St. in Raytown and is open to the public. For more information, contact Steve Lufcy (816)353-6705, or go to www.k0gq.com
