HAMMIN' IT UP: Okaloosa ham radio enthusiasts gather for field day

Published: Wednesday, June 26, 2013 at 12:07 PM.

Cal Zethmayr, the club's activities manager, said amateur radio has assisted first responders’ efforts, particularly with coordinating efforts in Hurricane George’s 1998 aftermath.

 "When Crestview became an island after George, our members assisted with communications," he said in an email. "We provide operators at all of the Red Cross shelters and for the Amateur Radio Communications room at the new EOC in Niceville."
