Wellington Radio Club Field Day At Village Park

(L-R) Wellington Radio Club officers George Samulkewitsch, Jim Cruz, Jim Painter and J. Pobliner.

The Wellington Radio Club held its annual Field Day exercise on Saturday, June 26 at Village Park. The event lasted all day long as club members worked to make contact with other radio operators all across the world. Field Day is when radio operators gather at locations across the nation to practice in case of an emergency. Back in 1992, after Hurricane Andrew hit Florida, amateur radio assisted in emergency contact when other forms of communication went down. Learn more about amateur (ham) radio at www.arrl.org.
