Field Day 2014

During calamities when phone connections and the Internet falter, there's always one form of dependable long-distance communication: ham radio. Ham operators can be lifesavers in times of crisis, and South Texas enthusiasts try to stay prepared for the next hurricane, flood or tornado.

On outings known as “field days,” such as one planned for this weekend at Raymond Russell Park, operators check their mobile radio equipment, including transmitters and antennas, and put their emergency networking capabilities to the test.

Hams across the nation are holding field days this weekend as part of Amateur Radio Week, an event that drew 30,000 participants last year.
