RARA operating event - Rochester - Sat. 5/4/24

 Operating Event for New(ish) Hams

Saturday May 4, 2024 (10am setup, 11am open)

We have had great success in the last three years in getting new or new-again hams kick-started in their ham radio career.

This year's event will be on May 4th (Star Wars Day, so feel free to bring your lightsaber), and will again be at the Pathfinder Shelter in Black Creek Park. We can access the shelter starting at 10am, this is when setup will start and then our new(ish) hams will join us at 11am. The event goes until we run out of audience, or out of steam, which usually is between 3 and 4pm.

If you would like to interest somebody who is new to the hobby in your niche of ham radio, here is your opportunity :)

I would like to again have a wide range of topics that we can present. In years past, we've had antenna building, portable operating, digital modes, CW, soldering, programming HTs, foxhunting, throwing antennas into trees and more.

If you can spare a few hours to help our newest hams to get started in the hobby, they will appreciate your effort and your time.

If you would like to participate, please send me an email with what topic you would like to present. If you would like to participate, but don't have a good idea yet about what to do, let me know, I can help you with some ideas.
