HAM radio operators of the Amateur Radio Society in Hamburg are making waves and are participating in a cross-country event.
They will meet on Lakeview Road until Sunday afternoon to participate in the Field Day of the American Relay Radio League.
As part of the event, HAM radio operators in the United States broadcast signals from temporary stations for 24 hours at a time, all to practice setting up a radio network in any condition.
“The technology is quite fascinating. It continues to grow and grow,” said amateur radio operator Laurence Plumb. “Today’s latest is a digital technique where we can actually send a reception signal far below the sound level that seems technically impossible, but somehow we do it.
According to the ARRL, there are more than 3,000,000 radio amateurs worldwide, 750,000 of which are from the United States.
