We as Amateur Radio Operators are a unique group. We are a proud group who all passed a license examinations and received license to operate on our assigned frequencies. We all have knowledge that has been expanded thru study, hard work and practice.
With our gained knowledge, most of us have chosen slightly different paths within our Ham realm. Some are here for public service, others to experiment with ATV, Digital modes, building and design or to socialize with others with like interests etc. The list goes on and on.
We are self policing, we are independent, we help one another and we all enjoy more than one aspect of our hobby. I know I have left out lots but I wanted to open a subject I believe we should pursue. Public Relations and Advertising.
Our net has a Picnic/Camp Out during last week in July every year. We have additional functions but wanted to use this as an example.
Our Picnic/ Camp Out will be advertised in several Ham Radio group magazine and news letters. But we need more. Let’s let every group, Organization, and Public news media know we are there. Let the public know they are welcome to visit, socialize and find out what Ham Radio is about. Spread the word on Kids Day, Field Day and every day!
With that said, I believe our net would benefit from a new appointed position of Public Relations Officer. Someone who can “spread the word”. Do we have a volunteer?
