COME AND PARTICIPATE IN THIS FUN EVENT.
On the weekend of June 28-29, the public will have a chance to meet and talk with
Rome’s ham radio operators and see for themselves what the Amateur Radio Service is about as hams across the USA will
be holding public demonstrations of emergency communications abilities. This annual event, called "Field Day" is
the climax of the week long "Amateur Radio Week" sponsored by the ARRL, the national association for Amateur Radio.
The Northwest Georgia Amateur Radio Club will also have a "GOTA"
(get on the air) station established during Field Day. If you have ever wondered how it feels to actually communicate via
Amateur Radio, then here is your chance for a first hand experience in Amateur Radio so please join us.
