This is one of NB9QV’s USS Cobia Amateur Radio Club annual events. The group also sponsors another special event for Veteran’s Day in November.
Local amateur radio operators set up in the crew’s mess aboard the U.S.S. Cobia, docked at the Wisconsin Maritime Museum in Manitowoc and talk to people around the world.. Members of the Museum and the Radio Club consider it a distinct honor and a privilege to participate in this annual event. Visitors can see and talk with Amateur Radio Club NB9QV members on board the submarine during these special events.
Bob Heil talks with Tom Gallagher NY2RF, CEO of the ARRL about hurricane recovery efforts in Puerto Rico, Hams on the International Space Station connecting with students, George Thomas interviews Martin Jue K5FLU of MFJ Enterprises, Gordon West on headsets, Amanda updates us on Val’s situation in Puerto Rico and more!
Each year, amateur radio operators throughout the U.S. set up operations in backyards, public parks, parking lots on the last full weekend in June…………..and participate in ARRL’s Field Day Event. Groups and individuals can earn points for using emergency power, setting up portable antennas and running multiple stations. It’s a great way to give your equipment a test run in less than optimal conditions – in the event that you need to operate away from home. Many clubs invite local dignitaries, Scout troops and served agencies (Salvation Army, etc) and show the public what amateur radio is all about. The Manitowoc group participates in this annual event and shares a potluck meal and ham radio camaraderie. Field Day 2016 is scheduled for June 27-28.

The Lakeshore Amateur Radio Service Club (LARSC) was formed to enable the local radio club to purchase affordable liability insurance required to rent space for their new W9RES station location. The ARES/RACES group has shared space at the Red Cross office in Manitowoc, but will need to vacate that property.
As an affiliated ARRL-sanctioned club, LARSC’s mail focus is to support Manitowoc County’s ARES/RACES group in their Emergency Communications activities. The LARSC business meeting begins at 6:30 on the 2nd Tuesday of each month (except summer). LARSC and ARES concerns are reviewed, generally followed by an activity/demonstration of general interest to the members.
Visitors are always welcome.

.Manitowoc County ARES/RACES members enjoyed views of the Mariner’s Trail on Lake Michigan when they participated in the 2012 Field Day Event on Saturday, June 25. Field Day is the single most popular on-the-air ham radio event held annually in the US and Canada. On the fourth weekend of June of each year, radio amateurs gather with their clubs, groups or simply with friends to operate from remote locations.
Some hams will treat the event as a contest, while others may use the opportunity to practice their emergency response capabilities. It is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate Amateur Radio to the organizations that Amateur Radio might serve in an emergency, as well as the general public.
Manitowoc members operated on 20 and 40 meters, and logged a total of 101 contacts during their one-day event. Portable antennas were erected on site, and radios were operated using emergency power, generated from the Red Cross Emergency Response Vehicle. Relatives and friends visited during the day and enjoyed a pot luck supper on the lakeshore.
