The Blackstone Valley Amateur Radio Club will conduct an amateur radio demonstration Sat., Oct. 1, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Bellingham Public Library, 100 Blackstone St.

The club will operate two radio stations outside the library as an introduction to ham radio.

An indoor display will feature the history of ham radio, its purpose, the benefits of the ham radio hobby and the public service hams render during national emergencies and natural disasters. Some vintage radio equipment will be displayed as well as a continuous Morse code demonstration.

Experienced hams will be present to welcome visitors, explain the day's proceedings and answer questions regarding their hobby.
