Every year on the fourth weekend in June, licensed amateur radio operators across the nation and in many foreign countries conduct a disaster readiness exercise called Field Day.  They take their personal radio equipment from their “radio shacks” to a remote location and put them on the air.  This involves erecting antennas, running cables, and providing electric power. The Lynchburg Amateur Radio Club (LARC), a non-profit public service organization, will participate in Field Day.

The event will be at Isaac Walton Lake in Madison Heights from June 23rd at 2:00 pm through Sunday, June 24th at 2:00 pm. Visitors will be able to observe amateur radio in action. They will see hams communicating by voice, Morse code.  LARC will also have a special “Get On The Air” station which will enable non-licensed people to operate ham radio under the guidance of one of the club members.

Besides being a readiness exercise, Field Day is also a contest.  Points are awarded for each contact made and bonus points awarded for a visit by an elected official or operating off solar power.  Last year, LARC scored 1st in Virginia in its category of three stations (3A) operation.
