2022 Winter Field Day (Updated 08/26/2022 at 11:27 AM)
Winter Field Day:
106 total contacts. Good fun, friendship and food. DMR, APRS, 2M, and HF. We even sent an APRS beacon through the international Space station on two separate passes. I also want to thank WROI for stopping out for an interview, and WTCA for promoting our club and WFD.
Marshall County Amateur Radio Club Vice-President Greg Haschel, Argos, sets up a radio station to broadcast their location with club President Chuck Dilts, Culver, today at Cornerstone Church in Argos, as members start to gather for the Worldwide Winter Field Day Event.
Amateur Radio, also known as ham radio, is a popular hobby and public service that brings people, electronics and communication together.
People use ham radio to talk to people across town, across the world and even in space without using the Internet or cellphones. Ham radios can be set up anywhere.
All Amateur Radio operators are trained to have basic knowledge of radio technology and operating principles and pass an exam for the FCC license to operate on “Amateur Band” radio frequencies. They have been known to aide in communication during public events and support during disasters and post-disaster situations.
