Via Southgate: Ohio Amateur radio historic event set for Oct. 1

The Southern Ohio Amateur Radio Association (SOARA) and the Lawrence County Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) members will participate in an On the Air Special Historical Event, Saturday, Oct. 1

The SOARA members will join with other invited amateur radio clubs across the Tri-State area to participate in this event. Several special amateur radios operating on different frequencies will be set up at the Burlington Commons shelter on the Ohio Riverbank in Burlington, 9 a.m.-2 p.m.

Amateurs will be operating radio equipment that will allow contacts to be made not only across the Tri-State, but throughout the United States and countries around the world. The radio stations will use the SOARA’s club FCC call sign, W8SOE.

A rainout date is set for Oct. 15.

In the last several years SOARA has participated in special radio events celebrating the rich historical heritage of Lawrence County. Last year they were at the Lake Vesuvius Iron Furnace, and in prior years, the Lawrence County Courthouse and the Covered Bridge at Scottown.

This year, in keeping with the historical event series, SOARA members will bring attention to the early history of Lawrence County and its first county seat, established in 1817 at Burlington.
