Ham radio demo planned this weekend
The Sandhills Amateur Radio Club of Southwest Kansas will demonstrate ham radio operation from noon on Saturday to noon on Sunday at Finnup Scout Park on N. Eighth Street and Thompson Street.
The annual event is the climax of a week-long amateur radio week sponsored by ARRL, the national association for amateur radio. More than 30,000 amateur radio operators across the country participated in last year's event. Over the weekend, hams will be demonstrating several modes from SSB, FM, digital to Morse code.
