If you get a chance
And are close to the Central New Jersey area this Saturday, please make sure to stop by the annual Raritan Valley Radio Club hamfest this Saturday morning. We are located in the parking lot of the Piscataway High School on Behmer Road in Piscataway, NJ.
We are conveniently located, not far at all from Rte. 287, the New Jersey Turnpike, Rte. 1 or Rte. 78.
The hamfest has been “gaining steam” over the past few years, and turnout by vendors and sellers has been on the increase every year. This year should be no exception. In addition to all the “stuff” that will be up for sale, there is usually some kind of neat demonstration of something going on, as well as VE testing. As a special treat, Alan W2AEW is usually in attendance, so if you’re a fan of his oscilloscope and test equipment videos on YouTube, there’s a pretty good chance you’d get the opportunity to meet and chat with him.
My main duties for the day will be to assist with parking cars and serving as a VE. But I’ll probably have the KX3 in the car, so if you want, and if you twist my arm gently, I could be persuaded to demo the KX3 along with my drive on mast mount and the PAR. Or, if you’d like to just shoot the breeze about QRP for a while, I’d be more than willing to accommodate.
The weather forecast for Saturday is in a word, BEAUTIFUL! If you’d like more info, be sure to visit www.w2qw.org/ham fest.htm.
Hope to see you there!
