FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham Amateur Radio Association (FARA) will hold its annual Ham Radio Field Day event on the grounds of the Christa McAuliffe branch library this month.
The event is scheduled for Saturday, June 23 at 746 Water Street from 2 to 6 p.m.
Everyone is invited to watch as radio stations all over the U.S. are contacted and information is exchanged.
The purpose of Field Day is to allow practice in emergency communications, using only batteries for power, with temporary antennas, so that local licensed radio operators are prepared for any emergency where they may be needed.
The Association hosts monthly meetings at the Framingham Police Station (except July and August.). It also offers testing for FCC-issued amateur radio licenses.
