Woodinville hams hold Field Day

   The public is invited to attend the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) Field Day June 27 at Fire Station #35 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event will feature Woodinville emergency communications team amateur radio operators setting up field radio communication stations and contacting thousands of other ham operators in the U.S. and Canada. They will be working to set long distance contact records and practice emergency communication skills. The objective is to see who can make the greatest number of contacts during the contest period. Besides being a competition, the Field Day is a trial run for emergency communication skills used during disaster situations. For additional information, call Steve Singhose at (206) 419-0829.
