The Portage County Amateur Radio Service (PCARS) will be holding its annual Field Day event at the Ravenna City Park on Oakwood Street in Ravenna from 2:00 p.m. Saturday, June 22 until 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 23, 2013. Field Day is sponsored nationally by the American Radio Relay League as a field operation for ham radio operators who provide emergency communications as well as a public demonstration of amateur radio activities.

Community members and public officials are invited to stop by and learn more about amateur radio and the many facets of the hobby. There will even be a station for members of the public to operate on the air.
