Emergency Preparedness Month
June 9th, 2013 by Jeff Mathews (AJ4MQ)
Most everyone knows Field Day is this month, and the best time
to check your equipments’ readiness. What some don’t
consider, this is the best time to CHECK THE BATTERIES.
As I have forgotten to keep up with my schedule, doing this in
junction with Field Day is a good yearly marker. Check your
batteries for corrosion, and replace as necessary. This includes
your Digital SWR meters, packet radios, FRS/GMRS radios,
Smoke and similar Detectors, handheld radios, your vehicle and
more. Don’t forget your calculators, as well as your flashlight or
At least I got it before it became a much bigger problem, but I
regret not checking more often. To me, it is very valuable
equipment, and should be respected as such.. especially if you
ever expect to sell it in the future.
Happy Field Day, Everyone.

Invite a Kid to Field Day
By Dan Romanchik, KB6NU
If you've been around ham radio for any length of time, you'll
notice that ham radio operators like to complain. One of the
most frequently heard complaints is, "Kids aren't interested in
amateur radio anymore." While I'm not so sure that's true, I do
know that now is the time for you to do something about it.
How? Invite a kid to Field Day.
