Amateur Radio Week – June 17-23

On June 11th, 2013, the Mayor of the City of Hurst, Richard War, declared June 17-23, 2013 as Amateur Radio Week in the City of Hurst. Members of the Hurst Amateur Radio Club Executive Board were in attendance at the City Council meeting and heard the proclamation read aloud by City Councilman David Booe.
The proclamation recognizes the role of amateur radio and amateur radio operators’ service to the community and readiness to respond during events such as hurricanes, tornadoes, disasters, and other communications emergencies.
The proclamation also acknowledges the ARRL Field Day exercise that will take place on June 22-23, 2013. This exercise is a “24-hour emergency preparedness exercise and demonstration of radio operators’ skill and readiness to provide self-supporting communications without further infrastructure being required.”
The Hurst Amateur Radio Club and Hurst RACES will be participating in the ARRL Field Day from Heritage Village Pavilion located at 837 W. Pipeline Road next to  Hurst Fire Station #2 for the entire 24 hour period and visitors are welcome.
