Amateur (Ham) Radio Field Day

Testing Readiness for Emergencies

On June 26-27, amateur or “ham” radio operators gathered around North America as well as in the East Bay-Delta areas to test their readiness for sending disaster information, no matter if a flood, earthquake, or wildland fire, to agencies throughout the USA.  

The local effort was observed by the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) and several members won awards from Heil Sound Amateur Radio manufacturing company for their Field Day photographs.

It was an intense three days of setting up antennas and calling out to other hams around the continent as well as logging all calls as proof of contact. 

See what it takes in the video below.
