Public Demonstration of Emergency Communications June 28 and 29

Submitted by Izzy Warren on June 25, 2014 - 9:52pm

Public Demonstration of Emergency Communications June 28 and 29 from 2:00 PM Saturday to 2:00 PM Sunday.
"Who ya gonna call ?"  Piscataquis Amateur Radio Club (PARC) !
PARC is our counties only "Ham Radio" club. The club boasts a membership of around 50 radio enthusiasts from all over Piscataquis County and even adjoining counties such as Penobscot and Somerset! Despite the Internet, cell phones, email and modern communications, every year whole regions find themselves in the dark. Tornadoes, fires, storms, ice and even the occasional cutting of fiber optic cables leave people without the means to communicate. In these cases, the one consistent service that has never failed has been Amateur Radio. These radio operators, often called "hams" provide backup communications for everything from the American Red Cross to FEMA and even for the International Space Station.
Piscataquis Amateur Radio Club hams will join with thousands of other Amateur Radio operators showing their emergency communications capabilities during the June 28/29 weekend. For a number of years now, PARC has provided emergency/safety communications for the Annual Kiwanis Piscataquis River Race held in April each year. The ham club is recognized for its service to the Kiwanis for their service on the back of the race T shirts each year. Over the past year, the news has been full of reports of ham radio operators providing critical communications during unexpected emergencies in towns across America including the California wildfires, winter storms, tornadoes and other events worldwide. When trouble is brewing, Amateur Radio's people are often the first to provide rescuers with critical information and communications.
On the weekend of June 28 - 29, the public will have a chance to meet and talk with Piscataquis Amateur Radio Club ham radio operators and see for themselves what the Amateur Radio Service is about as hams across the USA will be holding public demonstrations of emergency communications abilities. This annual event, called "Field Day" is the climax of the week long "Amateur Radio Week" sponsored by the ARRL, the national association for Amateur Radio. Using only emergency power supplies, ham operators will construct emergency stations in parks, shopping malls, schools and backyards around the country. Their slogan, "When All Else Fails, Ham Radio Works" is more than just words to the hams as they prove they can send messages in many forms without the use of phone systems, internet or any other infrastructure that can be compromised in a crisis. More than 35,000 amateur radio operators across the country participated in last year's event. "The fastest way to turn a crisis into a total disaster is to lose communications." said Allen Pitts of the ARRL. "From the earthquake and tsunami in Japan to tornadoes in Missouri, ham radio provided the most reliable communication networks in...
