Three County Exercise Held Over Weekend Pictured are six of the 14 ham radio operators who took part in the National Field Day at Garrigan Field Saturday and Sunday. All are members of the H-PAK (see story). They are standing in front of one of the radio transmitters which is in the truck. They are, left to right, Francis Ellis, Emmetsburg; Howard Smith, LuVerne; Ray Krominga, Lakota; "Si" Roth, Algona, Ralph Tibbils, Emmetsburg; and Henry Hanekey, Emmetsburg. Three counties, Kossuth, Humboldt and Palo Alto, participated in the exercise here. The local unit contacted 331 different stations during the two days, using emergency power units only. The contacts included 10 in Canada and others in 45 different states. The national exercise was organized by the American Radio Relay League. Local operators, who have organized their own network called H-PAK (Humboldt, Palo Alto, and itossuth counties), were but one if hundreds of such amateur radio groups participating in the 24-hour practice session for emergency communications across the United States. According to Howard Smith, manager of H-PAK and principal of Luverne high school, the purpose of the operation is to practice generator-powered radio communications by amateur (ham) operators in the event that the community was without the normal telephone, radio, television, and telegraph methods. Algonans Si Roth, Vaughn Rising, and 16-year old Dennis Georg were among the 14 licensed ham operators that were active during Field Day. Ham operators must undergo intensive study before they are able to pass a Morse Code and Theory test given by an FCC examiner. Only the licensed ham may by law operate a short-wave set functionine: in amateur radio frequencies. Stiff penalties of up to $10,000 or 2 years in prison face the non- licensed ham.

For Algona firemen, it was the second call of the day. Wesley firemen also went to the Ricke place. When firemen arrived, the shed, full of hay, was engulfed in flames and it was impossible to save it, the tractor or disc. Two gas barrels blew up and caught the machinery on fire. The house and a shed nearby were smoking from heat when the firemen arrived. They used water to protect the buildings.
