Hi Folks The FCC /ARRL exams scheduled for Sat Jan 25th at the Hamfest at Scottish Rites [which was sadly canceled] are ON! New site………
We were able to obtain the auditorium at the Webb Library Saturday from 10AM when they open the doors until 12 noon. We will have to be ready to hit the road running so to speak as someone has reservations starting at 12 noon.
Directions: Head out I-295 W portion Exit at 103rd exit [midway between Orange Park and I-10] Head EAST [back toward town] to 2nd light Library on corner with parking North side of 103rd St If you see WallyMart you have gone too far.
It is with great sadness I announce that due to a lack of participation, we have cancelled the ham fest. We only sold 2 tables, and I was one of them, and a very limited amount of tickets. If you bought a table and tickets for the Scottish Rite office, please contact them at 904-355-7633 about a refund. If you purchased tickets from me, contact me at 904-237-0999 to make arrangements to get your refund from me. It is hoped that we may do this at a later time. I still have hope that we can revive the ham fest of old, but obviously not now. Please help pass the word so no one goes down to the Scottish Rite and is disappointed that the doors are not open.
Thanks to all of those who were a great help. I really appreciate your assistance.
Come join us on November 16 @ 8:00am for an ARES “Day-in-the-Park.” Bring your radios, batteries, antenna’s, solar panels, generators, and Go-Kits…Test out your equipment…Share your ideas and help each other out!
Don’t miss it! This event is open to all amateurs!!!
