FAIR LAWN, N.J. -- Members of the Fair Lawn Amateur Radio Club will join 35,000 radio operators in the U.S. and Canada on Saturday and Sunday, June 25-26, in the National Association for Amateur Radio's annual Field Day.

The club will operate from Fair Lawn's Memorial Park. In the early morning, members will start setting up operating stations in tents -- with generators, computers, radio sets and antenna tuners -- and varied antennas have to be hung from the trees and mounted on masts, and then properly tuned.

The public is welcome to come take a look, as well.

In addition to radio operation, water, soda and coffee will be accompanied by pizza for lunch. Operations will begin at 2 p.m.

The Field Day location, more precisely, is in the park behind DeJong Field and overlooking the river. If there's severe weather, operations will move to the club rooms.

For more information about the local club, visit its website, and you can get updates about the national event on a Facebook event page.
