Come join the fun at the 2014 Larkfield Amateur Radio Club's Emergency Communications Field Day. Visit our communications site and see 21st Century Amateur Radio in action. Learn how to communicate when land-line and cell phone towers go down. For years, communication experts have known that when all other modes of communication fail, amateur radio is there, on the air, from anywhere. If cell phone service dissappeared during an emergency, how would you communicate with your family?

Amateur Radio operators set up and operate organized communication networks locally for governmental and emergency officials, as well as non-commercial communication for private citizens affected by the disaster. Amateur Radio operators are most likely to be active after disasters that damage regular lines of communications due to power outages and destruction of telephone, cellular and other infrastructure-dependent systems.

At the LARC Emergency Communications Amateur Radio Field Day, you'll be able to see:
Local communications using 2 meter handi-talkies (HT's) and local repeaters
International communications using HF radios.
Monitor public safety frequencies via scanners. See what's happening in your neighborhood!
Try radio for yourself! Get On The Air with our "GOTA" station!
