Ham Radio - RCARC Field Day 2009
The Ripley County Amateur Radio Club (RCARC) organized just over one year ago has become ready for disaster with a test in the field using portable antenna and operating without power from the electric company. Portable generators and home built makeshift antennas were used for the exercise. Field Day, sponsored by the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), is an annual event to keep amateur operators prepared in the event communications are disrupted or overloaded.
