Amateur radio emergency communications will be on display at Tuscora Park in New Philadelphia, OH June 24 - 25, 2017. The TUSCO Amateur Radio Club will be participating in the 2017 ARRL Field Day event . Brent Gribble, Club President, stated “This is a great opportunity for the public to see what the club does for the community, providing emergency communications if called upon. I encourage anyone and everyone to stop by and check it out.”


Field Day, a test of emergency communications readiness, is an annual event sponsored by the American Radio Relay League – the National Association of Amateur Radio. It’s expected that over 35,000 amateur radio operators from the U.S. and Canada will participate in this year’s event. The TUSCO Amateur Radio Club will set up stations at Tuscora Park Pavilion #5 for 24 hours non stop starting at 2:00 pm on Saturday, June 24.


Amateur radio operators and anyone with an interest in “ham” radio and emergency preparation are invited and welcome to attend. There will be demonstrations and the opportunity for visitors to “get on the air” with the assistance of licensed club members. Event is Free, open to the public, and all ages are welcome.
