Description: The Kershaw County Radio Club will be participating in the Amateur Radio Relay League Annual Field Day event. Using only emergency power supplies, ham operators will construct emergency stations in parks, shopping malls, schools and back yards around the country. "We hope that people will come and see for themselves, this is not your grandfather's radio anymore," said Allen Pitts of the ARRL. "The communications networks that ham radio people can quickly create have saved many lives in the past months when other systems failed or were overloaded.” In the Camden area, the Kershaw County Radio Club will be setting up a station at Camden Military Academy on June 22-23. They invite the public to come and see ham radio’s new capabilities and learn how to get their own FCC radio license before the next disaster strikes. Begins at 2 PM on Saturday through 5 PM on Sunday.
