Ham radio Field Day coming to LaSalle County park

Ham radio operators will camp out at Shabbona Park in LaSalle County this weekend. It’s the annual Field Day when amateur radio clubs around the country set up antennas and radios of various types and try to contact as many other clubs as they can.

Joe Tokarz, call sign KB9EZZ, says you don’t have to be a licensed ham to participate. Part of the contest they’re having involves drawing in the general public to get more people interested.

Field Day is going on from 1pm Saturday, June 24 to 1pm Sunday, June 25.
