Public invited to amateur radio event

The public is invited to learn about amateur radio operations during a 24-hour field day beginning at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Buffalo lighthouse on the Coast Guard base.

The Buffalo Lighthouse Crew of the Western New York DX Association of radio operators will sponsor the demonstration as part of Amateur Radio Week activities, taking place throughout North America.
