FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham Amateur Radio Association (FARA) will soon hold its annual Ham Radio Field Day, where they contact other radio stations all over the U.S. to exchange information.  

The purpose of Field Day is to allow practice in emergency communications so that local FCC-licensed radio operators are prepared for any emergency where they may be needed.

Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, Field Day this year cannot be held at the Christa McAuliffe Library on water Street, with the public invited, as in the past.  

Still, a major effort will be made by our local radio operators to contact as many other participating stations as possible across the country.

 For many years prior to the pandemic, FARA has held monthly meetings at the Framingham Police Station training room (except July and August.)  

The organizatuon also offers testing for FCC-issued amateur radio licenses.
