Ham radio operators signal

In Wall Mart parking lot

Calling all ham radio operators.

The annual Amateur Radio Field Day will be held in the WalMart parking lot June 26- 27, starting at 11 a.m.

This is the time when members of our local Radio Amateurs of the Gorge, or RAGs, demonstrate their ability to operate a ham radio station continuously on emergency power for 24 hours.

A press conference will be held for local dignitaries at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, followed by a Boy Scout project at 1 p.m., and a hands-on demonstration for the public at 4 p.m.

All members of the community are invited to visit, particularly those that might be interest in making ham radio a hobby.
