Members of the Metro DX Club from the Orland Park, Tinley Park, Oak Forest and surrounding areas participate in the national Amateur Radio Field Day exercise. Amateur Radio (sometimes called ham radio) has allowed people from all walks of life to experiment with electronics and communications techniques. Ham radio functions completely independent of the Internet or cell phone infrastructure, can interface with tablets or smartphones, and can be set up almost anywhere in minutes.
