On Saturday, June 25 and Sunday, June 26, the Huntsville Amateur Radio Club (HARC) held its annual Field Day operations.
During this event, amateur radio clubs and individuals operate using emergency power, such as gasoline, generators, or batteries to practice communications during a simulated emergency, as well as training in emergency situations, the event doubles as a competition. During the contest they try to communicate with as many ham operators in the 24 hour period.
Meteorologist Jessica Camuto had the opportunity to attend the event on Saturday. While there she talked to the group about weather safety and what to do to make a forecast! She also had the opportunity to try out one of the radios from the ‘Get On The Air’ station.
The HARC holds a meeting every Friday evening at 7:30 p.m. at 1806 University Drive NW or via Zoom. To learn more and see how you can get involved, click here.
