Jason Marin (center), KE7TDY, demonstrates amateur radio (also known as ham radio) operation to Field Day visitors Kevin and Ann Klee on Saturday, June 23 at 49 Degrees North Mountain Resort.  Marin is the Secretary for the North East Washington Amateur Radio Club. The Klees visited the club to learn more about the hobby.  The couple were especially interested in the capabilities of ham radio for emergency communications in case conventional methods, such as telephone or internet, failed to work.  More information about the club can be found at www.w7ghj.org.  Jared Arnold photo
