Amateur Radio “Field Day”June 24th – 25th: Demonstrates Ham Radio
Members of the Wayne County Amateur Radio Association (WCARA) in conjunction with the Kinston Amateur Radio Society and the Samson County Amateur Radio Service will be participating jointly in the national Amateur Radio Field Day exercise on the 24th and 25th of June. Operation will commence at 2pm on the 24th and cease at 2pm on the 25th. The Field Day site will be located in the wooded area across form 2104 Salem Church Road, Goldsboro NC 27530, just south of Lane Tree Golf Course.
This event is open to the public and everyone is encouraged to stop by. We will have a “hands on station” for the general public to experience Amateur radio. For over 100 years, Amateur Radio — referred to as Ham radio — has allowed people from all walks of life to experiment with electronics and communications techniques. In today’s electronic do-it-yourself (DIY) environment, ham radio remains one of the best ways for people to learn about electronics.
Anyone may become a licensed Amateur Radio operator.
There are over 725,000 licensed hams in the United States, as young as 5 years and as old as 100 + years! With clubs such as the Wayne County Amateur Radio Assoc., it’s easy for anybody to get involved right here in Wayne Country.
