*COOL CAPS* Sun Safety for Hams

Too much unprotected exposure to the sun can cause skin damage, eye damage, immune system suppression, and skin cancer.

Dx Adventure Radio Club (DA-RC) Members must be conscious of this when they’re out and about in the field (e.g. portable from an island or some other dx entity) where ultraviolet (UV) rays can leave a long lasting impact.

An essential component of sun safety is a ‘hat’ and there’s plenty of fashionable radio themed hats or caps available to ensure you’re always covered when it comes to protecting yourself from the WX elements.
