12:00pm – 4:00pm BBQ and Pot Luck.  Ham radio operators and those interested in radio are encouraged to attend.  Public event.


This is a free social event, and food will be provided, however, if you plan to come with a large group of people please bring additional food. What is being purchased is based on the membership of the two Ham radio clubs. Non-members can consider making a donation and/or joining the clubs.

This is a great opportunity for those interested in becoming a Ham radio operator to have a hands on learning opportunity. Even if you are not a licensed Ham, you can operate with a licensed Ham at his or her station to experience amateur radio communication firsthand.


Work Ham radio, compete against Don in a sack hop race, or just sit around and socialize!
