Public can see how ham radio operates
Residents of the Coweta area can see — and hear — up close how amateur radio operates this weekend during the American Radio Relay League’s annual field day.
Members of the local Bill Gremillion Memorial Radio Club will be setting up their equipment at the Coweta County Fairgrounds.
The ham radio enthusiasts will be in operation, making contact with other amateur radio operators worldwide during the 24-hour event. The event is free to the public.
Anyone interested in amateur radio is welcome to visit, said club member Rick Melville.
There will be on-site exams available for anyone wishing to take a test to obtain their radio license.
Anyone wishing more information may check the club’s website at www.bgmrc.org.
