Beginners Academy Antenna Talk/Demo Feb 12

Our next talk/demo will be Wednesday February 12th, 6 PM, at the Panama City ARC Clubhouse. The topic will be Dipole Antenna Basics and HOA Installations. The presenter is Frank Roman, KC8VKA.

Panama City ARC has launched Beginners Academy. Our goal is to help new hams get started in the hobby. Our club members have volunteered to give short talks and demos on amateur radio topics for beginners. These talks will be on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month at 6 PM. However, for January, they will be on the 4th and the 5th Wednesdays. You do not have to be a member of our club or licensed to attend. Also, experienced hams wishing to mentor new and returning  hams are encouraged to attend.

We will tailor our talks to your interest. You don't have to RSVP to attend, but a reply email would be helpful if you are interested in the idea of a Beginners Academy.

Ham Radio has come to the forefront since Hurricane Michael.  Bay County Amateurs formed an Amateur Radio Emergency Organization, see Also, visit for club announcements.
