Amateur Radio Field Day At The Park On Wilgrove
June 25, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 7:30 pm
On Saturday, June 25, 2022, the Mecklenburg Amateur Radio Society (MARS) kicks off their annual Field Day weekend. Beginning at 2:00 pm, amateur radio operators will demonstrate how they serve the community in times of emergency and when there is a need for Auxiliary Communications. The Mecklenburg Amateur Radio Society will base its operations at the Park on Wilgrove, 7750 Jim Harper Ln, Mint Hill, NC 28227. The radio operators will spend the next 24 hours contacting stations throughout America and Canada as they would if there was a need to relay important information on behalf of our served agencies such as the American Red Cross and Mecklenburg Emergency Management. Most stations will operate on emergency power to simulate disruptions to the power grid.
The event should be especially interesting to young people who are interested in science, electronics, and modern technology.
