Special Announcement

 Updated 4/09/14




The Scout-O-Roma on April 5 the best we have had so far. We had two pop-up shelters, 3 project boards showing propagation, 2 Meter communication and QSLs. There were two operating positions for scouts to use. There were 10 and 20 meter wire antennas and a 2 meter copper cactus. The 10 meter station made several European contacts and the 20 meter station made various state qso party contacts. Operators and visitors are listed below the pictures. The scout leader, Samantha McInnis was very helpful and seemed very happy with our participation. Thanks to Kenney (Uptown Station Maintenance) for helping us get the antenna attached to the bottom of the flag halyard.

The North Okaloosa Amateur Radio Club, Inc. (NOARC) is a service organization located in Crestview, Florida. It has members from Santa Rosa, Walton, and Okaloosa Counties in Florida and Covington County, Alabama.  During the club's history, members have supported the community numerous times by providing emergency communications and were often the only means of communication in and out of areas affected by disasters.  Club activities include participation each year in the American Radio Relay League sponsored Field Day event, hidden transmitter hunts, picnics, and hosting Technician Classes.  Our goal is to enjoy amateur radio and to introduce and promote the hobby to the public to ensure that there will always be a pool of well trained and well equipped hams ready to support our community when needed.
