June is Amateur Radio Month

At their regular meeting of June 4, the Ventura County Board of Supervisors presented a proclamation designating June as “Amateur Radio Month” in recognition of the volunteerism provided by the county’s emergency communications volunteers.

Accepting the proclamation were John Kitchens-NS6X, ARRL Santa Barbara Section Manager, and Rob Hanson-W6RH, ARES District Emergency Coordinator and ACS Radio Officer for Ventura County.

They were joined by a cadre of communications volunteers and representatives of several Ventura County amateur radio clubs, including CVARC, each of which invited the supervisors to inspect their annual Field Day operations on June 22 and 23. .
