The Dubois County Museum welcomes the Patoka Valley Amateur Radio Club on Saturday, Nov. 9, for information and demonstrations of its club. The public is invited to come learn about ham radio shortwave stations and about the club.

Club members will be setting up two to four ham radio short wave stations and will make radio contact with other hams across USA and possibly other countries. They also will be setting up a Special Event Station that allows hams worldwide to contact the museum.

Come anytime between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. to learn about this club and the ham radio. They will be set up in the log house area in Room 2. Admission will be charged for admission to the museum. Cost is $5 for an adult, $3 for a high school student, $2 for a middle school or elementary student and free to age 4 and younger. 

The museum also will be conducting a storytime at the Museum sponsored by the Optimist Club of Jasper at 10:30 a.m. in the children’s area that morning. The theme is fall harvest. Stories will be read and crafts and activities will follow the stories.
