The Nanaimo Amateur Radio Association will be celebrating their 67th anniversary as well as World Amateur Radio Day on April 18
The Nanaimo Daily News reports an open house is planned to mark the occasion. There will be demonstrations of voice and digital modes of ham radio and a direction finding hunt, where a radio transmitter is hidden and has to be found on a certain frequency through various search techniques.
Emergency preparedness will be covered at the April 18 event by members of the Coastal Emergency Communication Association.
