Operators keep vital lines of communication open during emergencies

Hurricanes, ice storms, floods – no matter what the disaster, emergency officials all over North America will be better able to communicate thanks to the efforts of Amateur Radio operators and their annual Field Day exercise on the weekend of June 24 and 25. For more than 100 years, Amateur Radio has allowed millions of people to experiment with electronics and communications techniques. Amateur Radio operators are private individuals licensed by Industry Canada to operate two-way radio equipment for non-commercial purposes.
