Historical Society of Woodstock Offers Amateur Radio Talk
Keith Tilley, the communications officer of the Overlook Mountain Radio Club, leads a team of 25 volunteer amateur radio operators. On Sunday August 10, at 2:00 p.m., Tilley will speak at Historical Society of Woodstock, exploring the history of amateur radio, the science behind worldwide communication, and the many ways amateur radio is used today. In addition, he will discuss the group’s ARES (Amateur Radio Emergency Service) and RACES (Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service) post 9/11 mission with such agencies as the American Red Cross and the county government. Tilley will also explore how members of the community can best prepare for the next big emergency. This event is open to the public free of charge and refreshments will be served. While attending, visitors can also view HSW's new exhibit, A Few of Our Favorite Things. The Historical Society of Woodstock is located on lower Comeau Drive (across from the Woodstock Town Hall).
