Field Day demonstrates ham radio’s ability to work reliably under any conditions from almost any location and create an independent communications network.

Amateur – or ham -- Radio —allows people from all walks of life to experiment with electronics and communications techniques, as well as to provide a free public service to their communities during a disaster or emergency, all without needing a cell phone or the Internet.  

Anyone may become a licensed Amateur Radio operator. There are more than 725,000 licensed hams in the United States, as young as 5 and as old as 100. And with clubs such as SCARA, it’s easy for anybody to get involved right here in the Saratoga County region.
