Radio Club Field Day in Moir Park June 24

Field Day is a radio communications event that brings together amateur radio operators (also called ā€œhamsā€) within your community.

The event is part picnic, campout, practice for emergencies, informal contest, and most of all, fun! ARRL Field Day is the most popular ham radio activity held annually in the US and Canada. On the fourth weekend in June each year, more than 35,000 radio amateurs get together with their clubs, groups, or friends to operate from remote locations.

It is a time when many aspects of amateur radio come together to highlight its many roles. While some will treat it as a contest, other groups use the opportunity to practice their emergency response capabilities. It is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate radio communications to the general public and organizations that amateur radio might serve in an emergency.

The East Kootenay Amateur Radio Club has been active in the East Kootenay since 1935. We have around 50 members in our club and are always looking for more. We have provided and will continue to assist during emergencies where our capabilities are needed. We also offer support for those who wish to become a licensed amateur radio operator.

We are proud to be a partner with the Regional District of East Kootenay (RDEK) in its Emergency Management plan. We thank them for their continued support.

So, come on by Moir Park and check us out on Saturday, afternoon June 24. Maybe try your hand at having a radio contact. There will be other essential service groups that will also have displays on site from 2 to 4 p.m.
