Committee Members Needed for 2017 Hamfest

It’s time to start planning for the 2017 ARRL Dakota Division Convention and RRRA Hamfest. This is the largest Hamfest in North Dakota drawing attendees from 3 states and 1 Canadian province. Committee members are needed to plan and run this major fund raising activity for our club. Lots of volunteers will make the work easy for everyone. Planning meetings will begin June 11th.

The Hamfest Committee will use a mailing list for coordination and to assist the planning process. A shared folder is available to committee members at the RRRA ownCloud for document sharing and archiving.

Hamfest Committee volunteers are asked to subscribe to the hamfest mailing list so that they can stay informed and be a part of the conversation. Volunteers may subscribe multiple addresses (e.g. work and home e-mail) if desired.

National Silent Key Archive Hamfest Display

One of the tables at the 2016 RRRA Hamfest & ARRL ND State Convention was a display about the National Silent Key Archive™ featuring North Dakota Amateur Radio Operators from before 1946; back when our prefix was “W9.”
