Radio club to hold evening meetings


The Wahkiakum County Amateur Radio Club was formed several years ago to provide training and practice in emergency communications. Their weekly meetings are Tuesday mornings 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., except the second Tuesday of the month, when they meet in the evening, 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., at the River Street Meeting Room in Cathlamet. The public is invited. The evening meeting starts with an update and Q&A on current emergency communications in the county, followed by informative presentations on subjects related to emergency communications and amateur radio. June’s presentation topic will be “All About Field Day.”

Field Day is where amateur radio clubs across the country simulate a large-scale emergency, set up temporary stations in a field somewhere (in our case, an unused baseball field at Wahkiakum High School), and attempt to communicate with as many other stations as possible for the 24 hours from 11 a.m., Saturday June 23 to 11 a.m., Sunday June 24.

For more information attend June’s Tuesday evening meeting, or visit their website at http://www.qsl/net/n7wah/index.html.
