The Heritage Hunt Hams Radio Club (WA4HH) in Gainesville Virginia, will once again be participating in the American Radio Relay League Field Day Event. Club members will be operating from an outdoor station set up alongside Heritage Hunt Way near the 10thhole restroom. Radios will be operating on generator power, simulating the conditions that might occur in a real emergency. This allows members to learn to operate in abnormal situations and less than optimal conditions. Members will contact other members at similar stations across the country with an emphasis on developing the skills to meet the challenges of emergency preparedness operations.
The club plans to be on the air from 2 p.m. Saturday, 22 June to 2 p.m. Sunday, 23 June 2019. Plan on stopping by and learning more about the club’s efforts to help prepare for community emergencies and to learn more about the fun and fascinating amateur radio hobby.
