The plaque was presented by Commissioner Guy Tunnell at the Bay County Board of Commissioners meeting today. The plaque was accepted by the club represented by Helen KI4OLP, Dave W1EVG, Don KK4DWC, Chuck W4CWS, Vic K4GXV, Bob WB4BLX, Bob KK4CVU, Joby KK4CVT and Greg N4KGL. My remarks were as follows:
On behalf of the Panama City Amateur Radio Club and all the hams in Bay county we are honored that ham radio is being recognized. There are about 400 hams in Bay County. Many of those hams prepare for emergency operations if needed. If all else fails amateur radio works. This Saturday we will have a 24 hour Field Day operation at The Bay County EOC starting at 1PM. We invite the commissioners and the public to visit our operations, We value our continued relationship with the county via Chief Bowen and Joby Smith at the EOC.
I encourage all hams and the public to visit Panama City ARC Field Day Operations this weekend!
