Ham Radio Day Begins Saturday
The Chautauqua Amateur Radio Service will host Ham Radio day from noon Saturday through noon Sunday in Erlandson Park in Frewsburg. The group will have food available throughout the event. The day takes place in conjunction with Ham radio operators nationwide. Operators take radios, antennas and other equipment to a site not ordinarily used for communication activities and attempt to contact as many other such sites as possible in a weekend. Field days test and familiarize Ham radio operators with the intricacies of setting up and maintaining communications away from their usual stations so as to prepare for the possibility of needing to do so in an disaster situation. The Catt. Co. ARES team and Pioneer Radio Operators Society, (PROS) will also be conducting a combined Emergency Radio Test from 2 p.m. Saturday until 2 p.m. Sunday. This radio test will be held at the Summit area of Allegany State Park. The general public is invited as well.
