Chester County ham radio operators from the 985 Repeater Group will hold their annual Field Day event from 2 PM Saturday to 2 PM Sunday. They will be operating their temporary stations off-grid as they demonstrate their technical operating skill and emergency communications preparedness. They will have multiple stations set up and will be contacting other stations around the world by morse code, voice, digital and even satellite! The public is welcome to see what ham radio is and to get on the air at the event! Because ham radio functions without the internet, phone systems, and the electric power grid, it is often called upon to provide vital communications during natural and manmade disasters such as hurricanes, earthquakes, and wildfires. When all other communications methods fail, ham radio prevails Many prominent Americans include astronauts, musicians, and Hollywood stars are licensed ham radio operators.

Field Day is a nationwide event founded and sponsored by the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) - the National Association for Amateur Radio.
