As the public information officer for the Calhoun County Amateur Radio Association, I want to recognize and thank members of the Calhoun/Cleburne County American Red Cross Chapter as well as the deputies from the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office who helped with and participated in our recent American Radio Relay League Field Day on June 23.

Both of these organizations, along with ours, are proud to work together to serve the residents of Calhoun County in times of need such as a disaster or other incidents. We were also happy to help those Boy Scouts from Troop 4009 who stopped by with their radio merit badge requirements.

Whenever the need arises, ham radio operators have sometimes been the sole means of communication in many instances during a catastrophe such as floods, earthquakes, hurricanes and tornadoes.
