Amateur Radio Club Day in the Parks

Stop by the parking lots at these parks to chat with members of the Knox County Amateur Radio Club on Saturday, April 23, 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. for NVIS (Near Vertical Incidence Skywave) day. The members of the club perform this setup to test the ability to determine if a radio station away from their homes will communicate with other stations across Ohio and neighboring states. This is a test to reaffirm that if a disaster would strike, a critical communication source would be available. The club also enjoys the test to have fun and communicate with others. These folks will have their radios up and running and will be contacting ham operators from around the world. Come join the journey.
