St. Louis Regional Airport in East Alton hosted the Lewis and Clark Radio Club’s Field Day. The annual event has been happening in the United States and Canada for more than 60 years. Local ham radio operators attempt to contact other ham radio operators from around the world. Emergency conditions are simulated and the operators use solar power, generators and batteries for power. For more information about being a ham radio operator, visit k9ham.org, contact Mike Morgan by email at email@example.com or call (618) 789-9692.
