Go ham — on ham radio
The Amateur Radio Field Day will take place Saturday and Sunday at Lake Tye Park, 14964 Fryelands Blvd., Monroe.
It’s a chance for the public to learn about the ham radios from amateur enthusiasts, who will be setting up temporary transmitting stations for the whole weekend.
“Ham radio functions completely independent of the internet or cell phone infrastructure … and can be set up almost anywhere in minutes,” said American Radio Relay League spokesman David Isgur. “Hams can literally throw a wire in a tree for an antenna, connect it to a battery-powered transmitter, and communicate halfway around the world.”

Comment on Baker Heights development
People will have a chance Thursday to provide their thoughts on the new development at the former Baker Heights affordable housing site in Everett.
The Everett Housing Authority, as well as architects from Seattle-based firm GGLO, will accept input on building design from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Baker Heights Community Center, 1401 Poplar St., Everett.
Until last year, the property was the site of a former military barracks that was repurposed into 244 units of affordable housing. They’ll be replaced by up to 200 mixed-income units, the housing authority said last year. The agency expects to break ground on the project as early as the beginning of 2020.
