HAM radio operators provide crucial assistance during hurricanes and other emergencies
The annual Jupiter Tequesta Repeater Group Field day is planned June 25-26 at the Jupiter Civic Center in Carlin Park at 2 p.m.
The event gives HAM radio operators a opportunity to test their equipment, update their operational skills and practice simulated emergency communications.
New HAM radio operators are welcome to attend.

Organizers are seeking volunteers to help with set up, operating radio stations, registration, cooking, cleanup and breakdown.
Amateur Radio is both a hobby and an emergency service, according to event organizer Albert Moreschi.
“Ham Radio provides the broadest and most power wireless communications capability available to any private citizen anywhere in the world,” according to a press release about the event sent out by Moreschi, a resident of Jupiter Farms.
