Amateur Radio Field Day

Local amateur radio operators gave the public a look into a unique form of communication this weekend.

The Great Southern DX Association in Gulfport hosted a 24 hour field day to demonstrate and talk about amateur radio with guests. The event was part of a nationwide field day organized by the American Radio Relay League.

Great Southern DX uses its technology to communicate with others across large distances. Great Southern DX Association President Ray Rocker said “What we are most interested in as far as ham radio is working stations all over the world in exotic places like islands and small countries and places like that.”

This week also marked Amateur Radio Week in Mississippi.
