IWARN meeting

June 11, 2017
Reinbeck Courier

Iowa Wireless Amateur Radio Network (IWARN) is a group of ham radio operators from Butler, Franklin, Hardin, Grundy, Marshall and Tama Counties. We would like to invite you to join us in our annual Field Day event. Field Day is an exercise we use to help improve amateur radio operators' emergency communication skills and demonstrate to the public what we do. An informational table will be available from 1-4pm on Saturday, but you are welcome at any time to see what ham radio is all about.

When: Operating from 1:00 PM Saturday, June 24 until 1:00 PM Sunday, June 25

Where: Miracle Park and American Legion Building in Parkersburg, Iowa

Who: Everybody! Families and youth groups welcome

The ARRL Field Organization has been effective in establishing emergency communications nets during floods, hurricanes, fires, earthquakes, terrorist attacks, and other major disasters, whether they be local, regional, or national in scope. This ability is entirely due to the willingness to volunteer and the readiness of amateurs across the country. Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) and Radio Amateur Communication Emergency Services (RACES) members regularly participate in Field Day so they will be ready when called.
