Amateur Radio Operator Field Day

This weekend, members of the Deep East Texas Amateur Radio Club are spending time at an Amateur Radio Field Day in Lufkin.

They are getting prepared if disaster hits East Texas.

Some of these amatuer radio operators are seasoned vets, but there is a newcomer this year 11 year-old Justin Craig. It's unusual for someone as young as Justin to become an amateur radio operator, so as a gift, the instructor gave him a handheld radio for passing the test.

Amateur radio operators are still needed in East Texas.   Contact the Deep East Texas Amateur Radio Club for more information.
