RCARC Field Day 2012
Saturday June 23 all day and night.
The Ripley County Amateur Radio Club (RCARC) became ready for disaster with a test in the field using portable antenna and operating without power from the electric company. Portable generators, batteries, 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. The exercise was held at East shelter at the Milan, Indiana park
