A few weeks ago I attended a meeting with the Orlando Amateur Radio Club 2016 Hamcation folks (along with Division Director Doug Rehman K4AC). As this is the 70th Anniversary of the OARC Hamcation, and it is now designated as an ARRL National Convention, it is sure to be a grand event! Mark your calendars for February 12, 13 and 14, 2016 and plan on attending this event. There will be a NFL Section Forum for our ARES and Section members, most likely Saturday mid-late morning, DXCC/VUCC/WAS Card Checking and an ARRL contingent similar to the Dayton/Centennial event. I will be at Hamvention all three days. This is probably going to be a one in a lifetime event so I encourage you to stop by if you can. The OARC/Hamcation page is: http://www.hamcation.com/
Condolences to the family of Jackson County EC Bill Everett Bill Everitt, KG4ZJT who became a Silent Key this past month. Bill was appointed as the Jackson County EC in 2005 and his 10 years of ARES service is greatly appreciated! . We are soliciting a replacement for him and hope to have one soon. Also, thanks to Keith Seaman who served as Gulf County Emergency Coordinator for the last year and is stepping down as he is moving out of the area; Best wishes for you in the future! And a BIG WELCOME and CONGRATULATIONS to James Cox KJ4RVK who has accepted the Gulf County EC position. Best wishes and Good Luck to you!
We start the “winter” holiday season with much to be thankful for – and I am certainly thankful for all of you who selflessly dedicate your time and efforts to help others. It is the true measure of a decent human being and an FB ham radio operator. My best wishes to all for a safe and Happy Thanksgiving holiday. And don’t forget the contests and Special Event Stations!! Hi hi hi……….
Stay safe, get on the air, and have fun!!
73, Steve WB4OMM
