The Mt. Diablo Amateur Radio Club (MDARC) held their field day event at Heather Farm last weekend.
Field Day is sponsored by the Amateur Radio Relay League (ARRL) and is a nation wide event where Amateur Radio Operators connect with other Amateurs all over the World.
Two way radio communication is not only a great hobby, but a vital recourse for emergency communications both locally and internationally. When nothing else works, Amateur Radios and their operators will be there to help in emergency situations.
The MDARC Field Day event was 100% solar powered, operating on solar charged batteries.
MDARC will also be providing communication services for the Pleasant Hill 4th of July Parade.
