Demonstrations of science and skill
Members of the QSY Society Amateur Radio Club, which meets monthly in Hopewell Junction, will participate in the national Amateur Radio Field Day on Saturday, June 25, and Sunday, June 26, at Bowdoin Park in Poughkeepsie. The national event has been held annually since 1933.
The field day demonstrates ham radio’s ability to work reliably under any conditions, from almost any location, and create an independent communications network. There are more than 725,000 licensed operators in the U.S., from ages 5 to 100.
Members of the QSY club will be offering demonstrations at Pavilion 4 on Sheafe Road from 2 p.m. on June 25 through 2 p.m. on June 26. The mobile command unit of the Dutchess County Office of Emergency Response will be on hand from noon to 2 p.m. on June 25. For more information, visit qsysociety.org.
