“ARMAD- 2007″ is MAY 26, 2007
0900 – 1200 noon (Central Time)
ARMAD is an annual Amateur Radio Special Event project that stands for Amateur Radio Military Appreciation Day. We work with National Military Appreciation Month during the month of May. We also provide other events and work with other groups as requested during the year. Amateur Radio Operators from around the world team up during this joint effort to allow the people from our communities to gather at public locations such as shopping centers, parks, VA hospitals, and sporting events to express verbal positive support “LIVE” over two way radio for members of the Military, Veterans, Reserves, National Guard, Retired, Coalition Forces, and military support groups. Many of us have friends, relatives, and neighbors that are active duty, and past members of the armed forces. ARMAD gives us the chance to support one another, and to express our thanks and appreciation to those that sacrifice and serve in the Armed Forces.
You can touch base with ARMAD at the ARMAD Website

ARMAD 2007 is fast approaching!
Our Troops, Military Retired, and Veterans need the support of the people back home in our communities. We have a unique opportunity using Amateur Radio to let them hear positive messages of support and thanks.
On March 13, 2007 KB9IBW / Emery will be a guest on the “United We Roll” Radio Show on AM 1690 in Riverside Iowa. The show is also heard on Stardust Radio at http://www.stardustradio.com. The show airs from 4 P.M. – 6 P.M. EST and 3 P.M. – 5 P.M. CST.
The toll free call in number is 1-877-213-4329 if you want to ask a question or comment live on the air. Let’s promote Amateur Radio, while supporting our Military Members.
Also, ARMAD has received two Proclamations to date for our 2007 Event which will be held on the air May 26, 2007. You may view these and two from the past at http://www.armad.net/proclamations.htm.
