The Fulton ARC, in conjunction with Oswego County RACES, will be on the air for ARRL Field Day this weekend. They will be operating from the Emergency Operations Center in the lower section of the Oswego County Building on Route 481 North, Fulton (across from Mimi's Diner). Hams wishing to visit the operation may call in on 146.565 MHz simplex for access to the building. ARRL Field Day is the largest Emergency Communications Exercise in the world, involving more that 30,000 hams in the USA and Canada.
If one is asked to name famous inventors who contributed to the development of modern radio communications Edwin Armstong's name may not come immediately to mind. Yet he invented virtually -all- of the technology that moved us beyond spark-gap transmitters and crystal detector receivers. Join us for a program on the life, inventions and travails of Edwin Armstrong.
