Ham Radio Field Day In Marshall

     Reaching around the world to talk to our neighbors was the focus of a ham radio field day today in Marshall. For 24 hours, these ham operators will make contact with other operators, to establish communication contacts in the event of a crisis or national emergency. In the past, ham operators have provided critical communication in emergencies such as wildfires in California, storms in Michigan and Oregon, and floods in the Midwest. The field day is an opportunity for the public to come out and see first hand how ham operators function using only emergency power and limited equipment. The Marshall amateur radio club is hosting the field day at the applied technology center until 1 o'clock tomorrow afternoon. Bob Hallmark reporting/bhallmark@kltv.com
