RCARC Field Day 2012

Saturday June 23 all day and night.
The Ripley County Amateur Radio Club (RCARC) becomes 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 will be 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. Please stop by the East shelter at the Milan, Indiana park to see the Field Day in action- everyone welcome.
