WA5ZNU 2006 Field Day Plans
Last Year

I am repeating my participation in the national amateur radio emergency preparedness demonstration this weekend in front of Palo Verde Elementary School. Last year I conducted this demonstration on Saturday at the flagpole.

Throughout the country, amateur radio operators will be setting up radio stations in unusual locations and making contact with others as a display of their emergency communications capabilities.

In the past year alone,hams have made headlines with their work in the tsunami in Asia, hurricanes in Florida, many fires, train derailments and other crises. The hams provide emergency communications for the Red Cross, Salvation Army, DHS Citizens Corps and other organizations in disasters. In addition, they provide supplemental communications when normal systems are rendered inoperable or overloaded.

Here is more information:

See you there!
