The Chickasaw Amateur Radio Association and the Olive Branch Amateur Radio Club invite you to our 2018 ARRL Amateur Radio Day in the Park to be held at Olive Branch City Park on Saturday October 6th, 2018.
Come and meet local amateur radio operators, get on the air with our two GOTA stations, win door prizes (must be present to win), have some food, and in general have fun with your fellow hams. We will have speakers, tailgating, VE testing, and other amateur radio related activities. Bring the whole family.
Hours are 9am to 2pm at the main pavilion in the Olive Branch City Park. Due to other events at the park that weekend, parking will be at a premium and tailgaters are urged to bring folding tables, chairs, portable canopies, etc. We will have plenty of room in the grass area next to the pavilion for swap tables. If you are planning to tailgate or set up in the swap area, please contact Brad Kerley, [email protected] to help with our planning.
