Amateur Radio Field Day

The Santa Barbara Amateur Radio Club (SBARC) will be demonstrating Amateur Radio at Camino Real Marketplace, 7410 Hollister Avenue on Saturday, June 28 from 11:00 AM through Sunday, June 29 at 11:00 AM. SBARC invites the public to come and see ham radio’s new capabilities and learn how to get their own FCC radio license before the next disaster strikes. The public is most cordially invited to come, meet and talk with the hams. They can even help you get on the air! See what modern Amateur Radio can do. -- Press Release
