GARVIN PARK - More than 35,000 amateur radio operators in the U.S. and Canada gathered their gear and set up their antennas in remote locations last weekend to participate in the annual Amateur Radio Relay League Field Day. Amateur radio, often called ham radio, is a popular hobby for people who want to transmit information through the air to locations across the globe without depending on commercial systems. Some radios are even able to reach beyond our planet, as some operators have prided themselves with making contact with the International Space Station as it passes over them.
