Emergency Communications Demonstration, June 22 & 23.

Emergency radio communications will be demonstrated at the Yolo County Fair Grounds on Saturday, June 22 starting at 11:00 AM.  This will be of interest to all ages.  Members of four local amateur radio clubs will be contacting some of the 2,800 other stations across the United States in a national exercise.  The public is welcome to observe and participate with radio contacts.  Enter using the gate by the Fair office on East Ave.


“We will be ready for operation after an early morning setup, as we train to support Yolo County Office of Emergency Services and local hospitals,” offered event co-chair Bill Ragsdale, K6KN. He added, “We hold weekly drills from the comfort of our homes. Now we will be operating realistically using solar power in 100-degree weather.”


The local radio operators will use voice and Morse Code with an elaborate “antenna farm” of beam, vertical and wire antennas.

This exercise has been conducted nationally since 1933. Our local Field Day is a joint event between Yolo Amateur Radio Society, Berryessa Amateur Radio Club, Yolo County Amateur Radio Emergency Service and Sacramento Amateur Radio Club.

As a joint event with the Mt. Vaca Amateur Radio Club, YARS, ARES, and the Sacramento Amateur Radio Club  we will hold Field Day at the Yolo County Fair Grounds in Woodland.  Setup begins at 8:00 AM (help needed) with operation beginning at 11:00 AM.  We'll have a dinner at about 5:00 PM and operate as long as we have operators.  Operation will resume about 8:00 AM Sunday until 11:00 AMN
