Two Copperas Cove amateur radio operators participated in the American Radio Relay League’s field day on Saturday at the Copperas Cove Police Department. Ted Bruski and Priscilla Beauregard, along with Deputy Fire Chief Gary Young, welcomed citizens on Saturday afternoon to see what they do, as well as raise awareness of being prepared in the event of a local disaster. If the area’s digital capabilities are disabled during a disaster along with other resources such as electricity and other vital services, radio operators will play an important role in keeping the community connected to the outside world.
