Emergency communications outreach

Learn about ham radio at a special event in Gearhart.

Sunset Empire Amateur Radio Club and the city of Gearhart present an emergency communications outreach and field day event from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, June 23, at the corner of Pacific Way and Marion Avenue in Gearhart.

Every attendee will have a chance to talk on the radio to other local and foreign amateur radio operators, see operational displays of different types of emergency radio gear and participate in events emphasizing family and personal preparedness.

Attendees can try their hand at tapping out their names in Morse code. Children will also have fun with the Morse code scavenger hunt.

Sponsors include the Clatsop County Emergency Management Division, the Astoria Lions Club, Ham Radio Outlet, and many others.

For more information, contact Dana Gandy at 971-601-0283.
