CVARC is planning to have a booth at the Tunbridge World’s Fair to provide information for public about amateur radio and to recruit new members. Help is needed to man the booth all days the fair is in operation.
We have a few events coming up this month, namely the Groton Forest Trail Run and the Tunbridge Fair.
Groton Forest Run: September 10th, 2022 happening from 7am to ~5pm. Aid station on/off times varying from 7-9am and 11am-5pm. You can view race details and sign up here:
We are looking for a setup crew of around 3 people to assist with the temporary repeater, as well as 6 course operators including net control.
Tunbridge Fair: September 15th through the 18th, 9am-9pm every day. We are looking for volunteers to man the booth for a few hours at a time – the more the merrier! That way we can take shifts and nobody gets burned out. We’d like to have people who are comfortable speaking to the public about ham radio, in a way that engages, educates, encourages, and paints the hobby in a positive light.
There will be an HF station on the air operating as W1F, so you are welcome to come and operate to show the public how HF radio works.
Feel free to sign up here:
