Field Day is ham radio's open house. Every June, more than 40,000 hams throughout North America set up temporary transmitting stations in public places to demonstrate ham radio's science, skill and service to our communities and our nation. It combines public service, emergency preparedness, community outreach, and technical skills all in a single event. Field Day has been an annual event since 1933, and remains the most popular event in ham radio.
"Two nurses from the Salish Aire boarded the Study Beauty and provided medical assistance by giving them oxygen." These are none other then our seafaring winter guests Norman Gregory KI7CKD and Clarice Gregory KI7RLD, whom spent the winter with us here is Sitka, and became members of the SHARK Sitka Ham Amateur Radio Klub. I can not imagine a better couple of people, even having oxygen on board, to be there for them. (AL5X-David Lowrance)
