Two local ham radio operators, David Ferland and David Hale, will set up a real amateur radio station in the library, and workshop participants will have an opportunity to operate the station live on the air. The many facets of amateur radio attract practitioners with a wide range of interests. Many amateurs begin with a fascination of radio communication and then combine other personal interests to make pursuit of the hobby rewarding. Some of the focal areas amateurs pursue include public service and safety communicationsradio contestingradio propagation study, technical experimentation, and computer networkingThere will be information about local and regional ham clubs and organizations, licensing, and getting started.
