Radio hams will celebrate Minnesota’s 163rd birthday

Local amateur radio operators, also known as hams, will commemorate the 163rd birthday of Minnesota statehood with a special event called the “Minnesota Birthday Bash” in Stillwater’s Pioneer Park on May 11.

The South East Metro Amateur Radio Club will have several radio stations operating in a variety of frequencies and modes from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., according to a press release from SEMARC. The public is invited to watch and ask questions about ham radio.

The location of the event was selected because of its proximity to the place where a group of Minnesota leaders met in 1848 to write a petition requesting Congress to establish a territory that led to statehood on May 11, 1858.
