Members and guests of the Cass County Amateur
Radio Club will gather to operate the club station W9VMW during Field Day in June of 2018.
The event will be held at the Cass County Emergency Management Agency
building at 1227 north State Road 17, just north of Logansport.
The club gathers each year to participate in the American Radio Relay
League Field Day event.
The goal of field
day is to introduce the public to the amateur radio hobby, allow local
ham radio operators to practice their skills at making as many contacts
as possible during the 24 hours of the event, and to have fun and
functions completely independent of the Internet or cell phone
infrastructure. When other communications systems fail or become
over-loaded, amateur radio can still operate and get vital messages
through during natural or man-made disasters.
Members of the Cass County Amateur
Radio Club invite the public to attend the local Field Day event.
A special amateur radio station will be available so members of the
public of all ages can get a feel for the hobby, by getting on the air
themselves with assistance from a licensed ham radio operator.
