4th of July Event

Lubbock Amateur Radio Club and the Lubbock County ARES Group was tasked with providing communications for a 4th of July event at Henry Huneke Park last Saturday.  Henry Huneke Park is home to the Lubbock Area Veterans War Memorial and if you haven’t seen it, the memorial is a gem.  Anyone traveling through Lubbock should stop and see it. At night, the lighting adds to its beauty.

The event was centered around the monument.  Nashville Ave. was blocked off for pedestrians and food vendors.  A march, live music, public speakers which included Lt. Col. Allen West, and a flag ceremony were some of the attractions.

Event Communications

Public service is one of the most valuable and rewarding aspects of Amateur Radio.  Giving ham radio operators the opportunity to practice their skills in a live environment, provide much needed support for the community, and build lasting relations between Hams and their communities.

Our communications team was made up of Brandon N5BKB, Jim KI4TUQ, Jeffery KI5IZU, Jerry K5LBK, Brandon K5BEK, and Patrick KG5ZYP. These folks stepped up to the plate and performed exemplary.  The team set up and maintained communications, worked the two roadblocks to keep pedestrians safe from traffic, and helped with clean up after the event.

Our Host

LARC would like to thank the host of this event, Ranai Dempsey, for inviting us to help with event communications.  We had a great time!  Great event, great music, great food, and great company.  Thank you.

Lt. Col. Allen West and Event Host Ranai Dempsey
