NEWBURGH — “When all else fails, ham radio works.”
Members of the Orange County Amateur Radio Club will be putting this motto to the test as they take part in Field Day 2015, June 26-27, at Cronomer Hill Park in Newburgh.
The public is invited to visit, observe the all-emergency-power operation and even participate by talking on the “GOTA” (Get On The Air) station.
Field Day was initiated in the 1930s as an exercise in amateur radio emergency preparedness and as such has evolved into the largest ham contest of the year, sponsored by ARRL, the American Radio Relay League (www.arrl.org).
