Highland Road Park Observatory Celebrates American Radio Relay League Field Day June 25

Celebrate American Radio Relay League Field Day June 25 from 2-10 p.m. at Highland Road Park Observatory, 13800 Highland Road.

Guests of all ages can explore demonstrations and observe the Baton Rouge Amateur Radio Club participate in this exciting emergency exercise.

Visitors have the chance to communicate with other ham operators and send their name in Morse code. The FCC controls licenses to ham radios; however, at this celebration only, non-licensed visitors can transmit with the guidance of licensed hams.The observatory hopes this opportunity motivates participants to obtain their own license.

For more information call the observatory at 225-768-9948 or visit hrpo.lsu.edu.
