Amateur Radio Field Day – Emergency Exercise
An emergency preparedness exercise to establish long distance communications capabilities in support of the City of Surrey Emergency Program.
Surrey Amateur Radio operators will set up a field station simulating emergency conditions, without using established services to contact thousands of other hams throughout North America in the continent’s largest ham radio on-air event.
This team placed second in their category for Field Day 2014. They will be looking to better their score in 2015.
The public is invited to observe contest operations, see ham radio’s new capabilities, view a live Space Station contact and learn how to obtain their own Industry Canada radio license.
Kids activities include a hidden transmitter hunt and message decoding!
