The Ski Country Amateur Radio Club will be participating in a nationwide emergency preparedness operation again this year over the weekend on Missouri Heights.

The public is invited to observe and participate as the club uses emergency power and temporary antennas to talk to other hams all over the world from its mountaintop site. The operation runs from noon Saturday until noon Sunday.

Anyone can participate. The club will help participants make contacts, use the radios and antennas, and use the computer to log contacts.

Ham license testing will be available at the site.

For more information and directions, go to http://www.k0rv.org or the club’s blog at http://k0rvwordpress.com, or call Bob at 945-8722.

Start a dialogue, stay on topic and be civil.
