Amateur radio has a role in National Wildlife Refuge Week

Amateur radio operators can help let the public know about the National Wildlife Refuge System by operating from refuges during National Wildlife Refuge Week (http://www.nwrweek-radio.info/), Oct. 13-19 (radio operators mark the event from Oct. 12-20), highlighting refuge features, wildlife and geography while contacting other stations across the United States and North America. The goal for participants is to combine their communication skills with their enjoyment of the outdoors to help others learn about the National Wildlife Refuge System.

Authorized, safe, responsible access to refuges is sanctioned by this event. New this year, hams may also operate from wildlife refuges, areas or preserves managed by any state, territory or Canadian province. Those planning to operate from a National Wildlife Refuge must obtain permission from the refuge manager and submit an operating plan to have their operation listed on the website. Hams experienced in operating from refuges are available to answer questions. Contact the NWR Week Amateur Radio coordinator at info@nwrweek-radio.info with questions or to submit a plan.
