(From the Central Michigan Amateur Radio Club!)
Greetings Ham Enthusiasts,
I KNOW you’re all looking forward to attending CMARC’s 2015 “OUTDOOR” HAMFEST on Saturday, July 25th, because it’s going to be a day FULL of FUN for Ham Radio, Computer, and Electronic equipment enthusiasts, as well as their families! Once again, it’s at the Holt Christian Church located at 2424 S. Washington Road in Lansing, Michigan from 8am-1pm (Vendor set-up at 6am). Admission is still only $3.00 per person, with kids 15 years and under FREE!! Admission for Vendors/Sellers is also still $3.00 each and that includes 1 sales space (additional sales spaces are $5.00 each). The “RF ADAPTER GUY” will be back as well as our local Independent “Amsoil” Dealer, plus many more.
We’re having VE testing (11am – Walk-ins are Welcome!); a GOTA Station (Get On The Air) for unlicensed visitors so they can find out why Ham Radio is such a fun Hobby; a Forum on “APRS FOR YOU & ME!” with a time for Q & A from 9am-10:30am. We also have a lot of great hourly prizes again this year, and our Grand Prize is a Yaesu FT-60R Dual-Band HT, which will be drawn at 1pm and mailed, if you’ve already left!) We even have some really nice Ladies prizes for all the Ladies that attend!
We have Donuts and Coffee in the morning and later on be sure to stop by the Food Tent where we’ll have BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches, Hot Dogs and Brats fresh off the grill with all the trimmings. So if you can’t find something to buy, sell, or trade — you’ll definitely find something good to eat!!
While you’re having fun shopping and rag chewing with your friends, please don’t forget to stop by the ARRL table and visit with Larry Camp WB8R, our Michigan Section Manager. Talk-in for the event will be on the 145.39 repeater (100 Hz PL). To register for a Hamfest sales spot, or if you have questions, please contact Julie McLain/KB8ZXR via the contact information below. I’ve attached our flyer for your convenience or to share with your Club and friends.
