Amateur Radio Field Day-Emergency Demonstration

Saturday, June 23, 2018

Do you wonder about the radio used in 'A Quiet Place'? It's an Amateur Radio! The public is invited to attend our biggest annual event (Field Day) June 23-24 at the Edmond Fire Station and Training Center. Field Day is a 24-hour radio emergency response/contest and open to the public. We have radio stations communicating with others across North America using voice, data and morse code modes and also using free orbiting satellites! We will setup the largest event in Oklahoma! This is to provide anyone who is curious or interested with a live demonstration of radio communications and different uses of radio in this fun hobby. It’s also a lifesaving hobby that is used worldwide. Because of the science involved and applicability to hiking/camping scouting organizations offer a radio merit badge, so bring your scout! You do not need a license to get on the air at our event. We are not here to sell anything; we are simply here to provide demonstrations and answer questions!
