Are You a New Ham? You're Invited!
- Are you a new ham? Wondering what's up? Why?
We've got the answer. You need a little assistance, perhaps an Elmer,
and a reason. The Muskegon Area Amateur Radio Council wants to help
you right the situation. We're hosting an event specifically tailored
to you and our wonderful hobby. Yes!
Saturday, September 13 we are inviting you to a foxhunt and new ham
orientation. The day starts at noon with some basic instruction,
explanation of the basic rules, and hardware check. Then we will go
out and chase the fox. Yep, a transceiver hunt for the hams in our
community. It all begins and ends at the MAARC's clubhouse on Scenic
Drive between Muskegon and White Lakes and over by Lake Michigan. Fun!
You need to bring along that spiffy new HT and any auxiliary antenna
you might have available. Or just yourself. We'll have lots of
information, tips, and suggestions. We will team up with other hams
of varying experience. Did I mention this will be great fun?!
Following the random and reasoned wandering around northern Muskegon
County we will return to the clubhouse for a wonderful time of story
telling, reliving of heroics, and a Steak Dinner. Yep, a steak, baked
potato, salad, and great friends. I bet you can't beat that offer on
any other Saturday.
Bring a friend, ham or otherwise. Bring a sense of adventure. Bring
your questions. Bring a few bucks for dinner.
Mark your calendar, set the alarm, and we'll have fun! Experienced
amateur radio operators are also encouraged and invited. This will be
fun for everyone.
See you there? We hope so!
