Amateur Radio Field Day Open House
Are you interested in Amateur Radio? Do you want to learn how you can communicate locally and globally without the use of a telephone or the Internet using just a radio and antenna? The Twin State Radio Club would like to invite you to join them for Amateur Radio Field Day. This is your chance to come out and learn, see a variety of Amateur Radio equipment in use, get on the air yourself and find out how you can become a licensed Amateur Radio operator and join in this exciting hobby.
Ham Radio as it is often called, is one of the original Do-It-Yourself hobbies and is one of the best ways for people to learn about electronics, physics, meteorology, and numerous other scientific disciplines, and is a huge asset to any community during disasters if the standard communications and power infrastructure goes down. Makers, electronics enthusiasts, and just folks who like to communicate are all part of the Amateur Radio community.
Twin State Radio Club will be operating using alternate forms of power including solar, battery, and generators, simulating a disaster situation, operating in a field, without any commercial power.
Come and learn about the many different ways to participate in Amateur Radio, including voice, digital communications, satellite communications, and Morse code. Learn about the variety of commercial Amateur Radio equipment available, as well as radio and antenna kits and electronics projects that you can build yourself, at home.
Twin State Radio Club will be operating continually from Saturday June 23rd at 2pm until Sunday June 24th at 2pm. Stop by any time, see the setup, talk with local radio enthusiasts and makers and get on the air and make your first radio contact! We’ll be set up at the Richmond Middle School playing fields 63 Lyme Rd, Hanover, NH 03755
ALL ARE WELCOME. You don’t need to be a licensed ham radio operator to attend. Stop by, check it out and see what this exciting hobby has to offer.
