February 6, 2009
DON'T MISS THIS EVENT. Plans are in the works to make it bigger and better than last year. The Hiawatha
Amateur Radio Association prides itself on making this Swap and Shop the best in the U.P. Each year we
attempt to out do the previous year and this year is no exception. Mark your calendar now and we'll see
As usual, this year's event will take place at the Negaunee Township Hall, midway between Negaunee and Marquette on highway M-35. From the intersection of highways U.S. 41 and M-35, go south on M-35 approximately one (1) mile and you'll be there. For the folks coming from the south and on M-35, just keep on a coming! You won't miss the place. (See map below)
The talk in frequency will be the 147.27+ repeater with a 100 Hz PL Tone, using the K8LOD callsign.
Doors will open at 9:00am and the event is scheduled to end at 2:00pm. Admission is only $4.00. There will be plenty of door prizes and as always, a raffle drawing. (You don't need to be present to win any of the raffle prizes).
Raffle tickets are $1.00 a piece or 6 for $5.00, so bring an extra five spot along. Many table have already been sold and usually sell out, so if you want a table contact Greg, KI8AF and reserve yours. Tables are still only $6.00 each. Greg's contact info: 906 225-1594 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
There's no need to bring a lunch or go out to eat as there will be plenty of food, treats, coffee and soda available at the refreshment stand. Lots of ham gear on the club table this year, hope to see you there.
