MUSCLE SHOALS-Ham radio operators from the Muscle Shoals Amateur Radio Club (MSARC) participated
in ARRL Field Day, a national amateur radio exercise, from 1:00 pm on Saturday until 1:00 pm
on Sunday, June 22-23, 2024.

Hams across North America participate in Field Day to demonstrate their skill and service. It
highlights ham radio’s ability to work reliably under any conditions from almost any location and
create an independent, wireless communications network. Many hams have portable radio
communication capability that includes alternative energy sources such as generators, solar
panels, and batteries to power their equipment.

In addition to approximately 1,500 clubs across the country, some hams will also use the radio
stations set up in their homes, backyards, or other locations to operate individually or with their
families. In recent years more than 18,000 hams participated from thousands of locations
across North America.

/the Quad Cities Daily was on hand to capture the event in photos.  We present them to you here:
