CRESTVIEW — North Okaloosa Amateur Radio Club members this weekend will participate in the annual American Radio Relay League Field Day demonstration of emergency communications.

The event, from noon Saturday to noon Sunday — featuring an open house noon to 6 p.m. Saturday — is at Dorcas Fire Station 42 on Deer Springs Road. The league’s annual event allows thousands of so-called hams to set up their equipment and contact other Field Day groups all over North America. 

The North Okaloosa Radio Club voluntarily has provided emergency communications for more than 30 years.
