On Saturday June 27th from 2pm to 10 am on Sunday June 28, the Orange Amateur Radio Association and the Woodmont Amateur Radio Association will join forces to participate in the annual ARRL Field Day.  The clubs will set up various radios and antennas at High Plains Community Center, 525 Orange Center Rd in Orange.

Field Day is a national on-the-air event held annually in the US and Canada by Amateur Radio Operators, otherwise known as HAMs. More than 35,000 radio amateurs gather with their clubs, groups or friends to operate from remote locations.  The event is part emergency drill, picnic, campout and contest.  

The public is welcome to come see what amateur radio is all about and to go on the air and potentially to HAMs around the world.
