Amateur HAM Radio Operators Serve as Vital Link in Times of Crisis

Amateur HAM radio operators, like Mark Varin and Matt Pray from the Champlain Valley Amateur Radio Club, play a crucial role in providing essential communication during disasters, especially when power and cell connections are down. Their dedication to serving the community during times of crisis is what makes being licensed HAM operators so fulfilling. Each June, HAM radio clubs across the nation participate in Field Day to demonstrate their skills, showcase new equipment, and engage the public in learning about their operations. The CVARC recently held its annual Field Day on June 24th and offers FCC License exams every other month.
