ARRL has been sponsoring this Field Day weekend since the early 1930s.Everyone is invited to participate. Set up help needed. Licensed hams can operate the transmitters. This is a good opportunity to review some of the historic amateur radio gear now in the new mobile storage as well. This is a good way to learn about amateur radio and its history. CHRS is working towards a large station for W6CF, with operating vintage equipment and interpretive displays. Much of the collection of amateur radio materials in the library is now being reshelved and will be accessible. 73 de K6VK.
