Past Swap and Shop Events

This is the one, the one you've been definitely waiting for, its bigger and better than last years, the largest of it's kind in the U.P., the annual
Hiawatha Amateur Radio Association Swap and Shop
If you didn't make the 2007 Swap and Shop here is a little of what you missed.  Just like the previous events, every table, forty of them, sold out well in advance with a waiting list of potential sellers wanting tables.  There was a couple of commerical vendors there, plus we had over 50 door prizes with several of them being worth over $100 each.  Sorry you missed it, so:
DON'T MISS THE YEAR 2008 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 you there.
This year's event as usual 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 comin', 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 the raffle drawing (need not 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 is usually a sell out, so if you want a table give Bob, N8PKN at 906 225-6773 a call.  Bob can also be reached via email at [email protected].  Tables are $6.00. There's no need to bring a lunch or go out to eat as there will be plenty of food, treats, coffee and sodas available at the refreshment stand.  Lots of ham gear on the club table this year, hope to see you there.
