Amateur Radio Operator Skills To Shine This Weekend

The Rappahannock Amateur Radio Association is gearing up for the Amateur Radio Relay League Field Day, an annual event uniting over 35,000 radio operators across North America. Scheduled for this Saturday and Sunday, the group known by call sign W4NNK, will operate from the Mid-County Volunteer Rescue Squad in Heathsville. They plan to showcase their skills in setting up High Frequency and Very High Frequency radio stations for emergency communications. Last year, the local group ranked fifth in North America for their category.
