The PenBay Amateur Radio Club and Emergency Communicators from the Knox ARES/RACES-CERT team participated in Field Day 2018 on Thomaston Green June 24. Field Day demonstrates ham radio operators' ability to work reliably under any conditions from almost any location and create an independent communications network. More than 35,000 people from thousands of locations participated last year. Above, Phil Gaudet, left, and Matt Perry, vice president of PenBay ARES, try out the equipment.
