MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) - South Georgia Ham radio operators are looking to give back to the community this weekend.

The Colquitt County Ham Radio Society and Moultrie Technical College Amateur Radio Club are hosting their annual field day this weekend.

In the hours and days after natural disasters and other tragedies, ham radio operators are often the only source of vital communication.

"We try our best to get people to realize amateur radio is there so they can get communication out or into an affected area. They can learn more about what is going on," said Andy Clark Colquitt Co Ham Radio Society.

If you want to learn more about amateur radios, you can visit the third annual radio show Saturday and Sunday at Moultrie Technical College.
