Panama City ARC Hosts ARRL Field Day June 24/25

The Panama City Amateur Radio Club will participate in ARRL Field Day on June 24/25 2017 at the Bay County Emergency Operations Center 700 Highway 2300 Southport, FL. We will be having fun contacting as many Hams as possible operating with similar setups around the United States. However, this will also demonstrate a capability to support emergency communications should normal systems be unavailable. The operating hours are 1 PM Saturday to 1 PM Sunday. A good time for visitors is between 2PM and 6PM Saturday but you can come at anytime. We will have various radios and antennas to operate voice, digital and Morse code. The general public is welcome and youth groups are encouraged to attend.
