What do you all think of this for a fast and dirty PSA?
Nobody wants it, few people expect it, and even fewer are ready for it when disaster strikes. When the lights go out, lines go down, the internet gets pooched, and cellphone service is graveyard dead, what happens then? How do you communicate?
There are some people right here in your own community who not only expect it, but are planning for it. Among those, Amateur radio operators.
They build, they plan, they organize the right skills and gear, and once a year, they jerk the plug out of the wall, drag it all out in the open, and smoke test their ability to communicate under harsh field conditions.
They call it, Field Day” and it’s happening again this year at the Love Civic Center Pavilion on June 25th and 26th. The public is welcome and encouraged to come observe the antics, and if you would like, actually get on the air using an amateur radio station.
Information about getting your own “ham” radio license will be available on location.
So, come along and have a look and join the fun.
That’s June 25~26, at the Love Civic Center pavilion.
See you there!
