Federal Way Amateur Radio Club invites community to Ham Radio Field Day

On June 24, 2017 the Federal Way Amateur Radio Club will participate in Ham Radio Field Day from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday at the LDS church, 841 S. 308th St., Federal Way.

The club members will use portable emergency radio “Go-Kits” owned by the club to build the temporary transmitter site. Club members will also set up some of their personal radios and equipment for the event.

Members of the community are encourated to participate in the event, talk to FWARC members and, with the guidance of licensed operators, contact other field day participants in distant cities and states using the radios. Community members can learn about the emergency communications services provided by the FWARC and its members to state and city officials in times of emergency or disaster.

The national event takes place every fourth weekend in June with more than 40,000 participants. The event, which has taken place since 1933, is an opportunity to demonstrate the technology, skills, public service, emergency preparedness and service to the community.
