Radio league holds field day in Bibb

The public is invited to the Macon-Bibb County Emergency Management Agency's Mobile Command Post to participate in calling people from all over the nation during the the American Radio Relay League 2009 Field Day.

Points are awarded for each contact and the exercise helps test equipment needed for disaster communications, said EMA director Johnny Wingers, who traveled with a crew to the Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina.

Volunteers will be in the Kroger parking lot on Tom Hill Senior Boulevard in Macon until at least noon today.
