Ham operators to dial in for Oakwood exercise

POSTED: June 21, 2012 12:30 a.m.

The Lanierland Amateur Radio Club will be participating in the annual Field Day exercise on Saturday June 23 at Oakwood City Park on Railroad Street in Oakwood.

The club will begin erecting antennas at around 10 a.m. Saturday in preparation for the start of the event at 2 p.m.

The purpose of Field Day, sponsored by the American Radio Relay League, is to allow ham operators to test their ability to set up and communicate under emergency-type conditions. Hams across America and Canada will be erecting portable antennas and powering their equipment with emergency power.

It also allows the public to take a look at ham radio.

For more information on Field Day or the Lanierland Amateur Radio Club, contact John Brandon at 770-536-0964.
