Each year on the fourth weekend in June, more than 35,000 radio amateurs gather around North America to operate from remote locations for what is known as "Field Day", sponsored by Radio Amateurs of Canada and the American Radio Relay League. The local Peterborough Amateur Radio Club (PARC) has set up in the parking lot of Rogers Cove for the event. The event began at 2 p.m. today and will continue until 2 p.m. tomorrow afternoon, so be sure to drop by to chat and learn more about our local club.
