ANNUAL AMATEUR RADIO / EMERGENCY PREPARATION
FIELD DAY 2019
June 22 – 23 2019
The community is invited to join the Riverside County Amateur Radio Association at Martha McLean Anza Narrows Park, 5759 Jurupa Ave., Riverside, CA for a weekend of outdoor Amateur Radio. The event is open to the public and is free of charge. The activities begin at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday and run through 11:00 a.m. on Sunday
This is a great opportunity to learn about Ham Radio and how you too can be prepared for emergency communications when disaster strikes. Additionally, ham radio is a great hobby for all ages and affords many opportunities to utilize the airwaves to communicate with others who have similar interests. Ham operators are service oriented and often help out when needed during events such as marathons, races, search and rescues, as well as communications after major storms, flooding, fires, etc.
Several organizations will join us to help demonstrate survival techniques, emergency preparedness, safety methods and other helpful resources. There will be many opportunities to learn how to become a licensed ham operator and experience several features of the new trends and digital functions of radio communications.
Come join us and see what it is that we do and how to do it. When a disaster strikes, we can communicate without electricity, cell phones or computers relying only on battery, generators or solar power.
