Spring into Outdoors Ham Radio

This video is a recording of our Beginner's Academy Zoom meeting on April 24th, 2022. We discuss getting outdoors with Ham Radio in particular opportunities around Northwest Florida. Thanks to Steve WG0AT and Bob KK4DIV for their excellent Youtube Videos that we included. Now is the time to get outdoors and operate. Also, consider your plans for ARRL Field Day the last full weekend of June.

The Panama City ARC April 9th Tailgate was well attended

PCARC,

I was pleasantly surprised by all of the support I saw at our spring tailgate on Saturday.  This gives me great encouragement that our club is on its way back. There were many in attendance to browse the equipment for sale, check out the portable station setups in the field or just socialize with each other.  I believe the club has a great future ahead of us with this showing of support.  Thank you all.

Panama City ARC Spring Tailgate Planned for April 9th, 2022

Please mark your calendar for the April 9th Club Tailgate. Come down to the clubhouse and park in the parking lot or the field where space is available. The start time will be 9 am and should go through lunchtime. Show us what you have to sell from your vehicle or just browse. You are welcome to demonstrate your portable radios if you like. The clubhouse restroom will be open. No food service is planned. Note the Wiregrass ARC will also have their Spring Tailgate on April 23rd. It is usually on the Square in Headland.
