Panama City ARC will be On-The-Air for ARRL Field Day.

The Panama City Amateur Radio Club is participating in the 2019 ARRL Field Day on June 22/23. This year the club will set up radios and antennas at their clubhouse at 130 N. Church Ave in Panama City, FL. Emergency power will be used.

Field Day demonstrates an emergency communications capability, but it is also lots of fun. The club will contact as many other Field Day stations around the country as possible in 24 hours starting at 1 PM CDT on Saturday. Our club call sign W4RYZ will be used.

The public and media are invited. The best time to visit is on Saturday between 2 and 5 PM. All local amateur radio operators are welcome to get involved. The clubhouse was repaired by the city after Hurricane Michael damage. Panama City officials have been invited to a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Saturday.

Addison Marvin KK4DKT is the club Field Day coordinator. Questions can be sent to
