Hurricane Irma: Amateur Radio Response
Hurricane Irma has come and gone but it left many effected areas with a
mess to clean up, power to be restored, homes to be rebuilt and lives to
In Palm Beach County many Amateur Radio Operators passed damage reports
and information about the hurricane to the EOC.
Pat Johnson KJ4AVE operated the Amateur Radio equipment at the EOC.
Hams in Hospitals, Shelters, government structures and from their homes
supplied Pat KJ4AVE with Hurricane information like wind speeds,
rainfall, power outages, damage and other related effects.
FPL workers are working hard to make sure that everyone’s power is
turned back on.
To all the many Ham’s who volunteered their time and efforts during and
after this catastrophic hurricane, a special thanks to all of you!!
Those who sent out any email comments were noticed and are very much

Volunteer Communicators Wanted For PBC EOC
As an Amateur Radio Operator I enjoy talking with other Hams around the world, chatting on repeaters with other Hams on my way to work, being part of a Ham Radio Club and tinkering with antennas. But, during emergencies and disasters, there comes a time to use our skills and assist others.
I met with Jeffery Childs at the PBC EOC. We had a great conversation and discussed how Ham Radio Operators and volunteer communicators can assist our Counties EOC and its entities.
We came to the conclusion that more Volunteer Communicators are needed to assist the Counties communication structure.
This role includes County communication tasks such as emailing, faxing, using Part 90 radios, HF, VHF, UHF and digital radio equipment.
After discussing the important role that communication volunteers have in assisting our counties infrastructure, I decided to complete the application to contribute my time and experience in helping to make this vision possible.
This is why I am also inviting you to join the PBC EOC Communication Volunteer program.
Your help is needed at Hospitals, School Shelters, Special Needs Shelters, local EOC’s and the PBC EOC.
If you are willing to devote a little of your precious time, download the attached application, fill it out and fax or email it back to Jeffrey Childs at the PBC EOC.
Also attached is the next Technician Class Flier!!!
