Whidbey Ham Radio Club will give a presentation on tracking Saturday, Jan. 26.

The presentation will feature a group of Island County Ham Radio operators who helped to provide communications in remote areas for the “Bigfoot 200” annual 200-mile endurance race.

As a part of their training for emergency preparedness, a group of amateur radio operators from Whidbey spent five days in the wilderness to assist and provide safety and emergency communications for the participants.

The public is welcome to hear about this adventure and how one can become involved in amateur radio communications.

The Island County Amateur Radio Club will hold its monthly meeting, open to public, 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Jan. 26, at the county commissioner’s hearing room, 1 N.E. Sixth St., Coupeville.
