And it wouldn't cost taxpayers a cent. At the invitation of Councilman JB Whitten, who observed the North Okaloosa Amateur Radio Club in action during its recent field day, club President Ron Mahn presented information about its communications capabilities at a Monday evening council workshop.

Legacy of Memories: As Curtain Comes Down, Hara's Smaller Moments Ring True
by on August 24, 2016
When shovels dug into the Trotwood ground in 1963 to expand the Wampler Ballarena, the new facility needed a name. Brothers Harold and Ralph Wampler came up with a simple solution: Take the first two letters of their first names. Since, Hara has been a household name in the region (and, in its heyday, the entire entertainment industry). Adding onto the dance hall built in 1956, the facility grew into a six-building complex that served as a convention, exposition and sports center on Shiloh Springs Road in Trotwood. When it opened in 1964, a whole new world of entertainment opened to the community. “It is a shame we have had to go to Cincinnati and Troy to enjoy the facilities these boys are putting up here,” said Harry Kiefaber, a Montgomery County commissioner, at the groundbreaking. After more than six decades of business, the iconic venue will host its last event - a comic and toy show - on Saturday. Announcement of the closure inspired recollections across the region. Thousands have sung along with a favorite band, cheered for their team and commemorated special events at Hara Arena.

Easton Amateur Radio Society Marks Coast Guard Anniversary:
by on August 23, 2016
BALTIMORE -- On Aug. 4, the United States Coast Guard celebrated the 226th anniversary of its founding. On Aug. 4, 1790 the U.S. Treasury Department created the Revenue Cutter Service to enforce newly-created tariffs on the high seas. Until the U.S. Navy was created in 1794, it was the only U.S. military maritime presence. It’s name was changed to the U.S. Coast Guard in 1915 and it is the oldest continuous United States military sea service. bThe Coast Guard has seen action in every major U.S. military action since the War of 1812. Today the mission of the U.S. Coast Guard includes search and rescue, coastal security, drug and migrant interdiction, marine environmental protection, maritime safety, enforcement of U.S. maritime regulations, and military action when necessary. The Easton Amateur Radio Society commemorated this occasion by operating a Special Event Station aboard the Coast Guard Cutter Taney, located at Pier 5 at the Inner Harbor in Baltimore. The station operated under the call sign W3T from the radio room of the Taney and communicated with other Amateur Radio Stations all over the United States, Canada, and Europe. Operating from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., 231 Amateur stations were contacted.
