Pottstown Area Am­a­teur Ra­dio Club: Host­ing on June 27 and 28 PAARC’S Field Day Ex­er­cise at Boy­er­town Fab­ri­ca­tions Inc., 500 County Line Road, Gil­bertsville. On-air demon­stra­tions, satel­lite com­mu­ni­ca­tions and emer­gency pre­pared­ness ac­tiv­i­ties are on tap for mem­bers of PAARC as they gear up to celebrate Am­a­teur Ra­dio Week, June 27-28, 2015. Dur­ing Am­a­teur Ra­dio Week, en­thu­si­asts will put on demon­stra­tions, give talks and take part in other ac­tiv­i­ties to raise aware­ness about Am­a­teur Ra­dio. The week cul­mi­nates with the an­nual pre­pared­ness ex­er­cise called “Field Day,” June 27 and 28, spon­sored by the Amer­i­can Ra­dio Re­lay League (ARRL), the na­tional as­so­ci­a­tion for Am­a­teur Ra­dio. Dur­ing Field Day, op­er­a­tors set up in lo­cal parks, at shop­ping malls, or even in their own back­yards, and get on the air us­ing gen­er­a­tors or bat­tery power. Field Day was de­signed to test op­er­a­tors’ abil­i­ties to set up and op­er­ate por­ta­ble sta­tions un­der emer­gency con­di­tions such as the loss of elec­tric­ity. “We want the com­mu­nity to know that in the event of an emer­gency, we will be ready to as­sist in any way we can, says ED McCoy. “While peo­ple of­ten think that cell phones or other com­mu­ni­ca­tions tech­nolo­gies have re­placed ham ra­dio, we can still pro­vide an im­por­tant com­mu­ni­ca­tions ser­vice that oth­ers can’t.” Field Day is a se­ri­ous test of skill, but it is also a con­test for fun and the largest “on­air” op­er­at­ing event each year. Dur­ing the week­end, ra­dio op­er­a­tors try to con­tact as many other Field Day sta­tions as pos­si­ble. More than 30,000 Am­a­teur Ra­dio op­er­a­tors across the coun­try and Canada par­tic­i­pated in last year’s event. The Pottstown Area Am­a­teur Ra­dio Club will hold Field Day at Boy­er­town Fab­ri­ca­tors Inc. and will be op­er­at­ing from June 27th at 1 pm to June 28th at 2 pm. “We hope that any­one who is in­ter­ested in see­ing what Am­a­teur Ra­dio is all about will come out for Field Day,” says Ed McCoy.
