Talk To The World!
Navarre CERT is partnering with the Emerald Coast Amateur Radio Association (ECARA) to participate in this year's Field Day, which will be held on June 24. This is a 24-hour period where people communicate across the US and the world while operating under emergency-type conditions. This provides outstanding training for radio operators.
It will be held at the Navarre Beach Marine Science Center on Navarre Beach. All CERT members are invited to attend this event and see what Amateur Radio is all about and how it assists CERT during times of emergencies. You can even talk on the radio...no license is required for this event! There will be several people available to show you what to do and how to do it! A couple of valuable prizes are available for those who want to operate...licensed or not!
CERT members are also invited to attend a Pot-Luck picnic on Saturday, June 24, starting around 1800 (6:00 p.m.). This event is a TRUE pot-luck picnic in that no sign-up forms will be put out. You are simply asked to bring a dish to pass and your own table service.
