Your weekend: Have a Field Day this Saturday
The Amateur Radio Club of Alameda is hosting its annual Field Day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. this Saturday, June 26 at Robert W. Crown Memorial State Beach (they’ll be at the corner of Shoreline and Westline drives, by the Sailing Shack.
Local “hams” will join thousands of other amateur radio operators across the country Saturday in a nationwide demonstration of their emergency capabilities. And participants in the event will have the opportunity to get on the air to talk to someone.
Mobile emergency disaster units obtained by Alameda’s Community Emergency Response Team will also be on display, and the folks at ARCA are working on making wind and solar power displays available as well.
The event is free and open to the public.
