MEDINA – Ed Weider, right, and Charles Lind were among the amateur radio operators at State Street Park in Medina the previous weekend for “Parks on the Air.”

For this event, radio operators travel to designated parks, each with a specific identifier, and activate the park for other ham radio operators to make contacts. The activity promotes emergency preparedness with portable and battery powered equipment.

The local amateur radio operators who participated at State Street Park include Ed Weider, K2EDW; Charles Lind, N8CL; David Westbrook, K2DW; Maria Westbrook, K2EO; and Warren Westbrook, 11 years old, KD2ZUA.
