***UPDATE*** Time for Swap Meet changed to 1PM
Since many hamfests and swap meets have been cancelled due to COVID-19, it was suggested that the local hams put one together here locally for anyone that wants to sell some equipment they have or find something they want to add to their shack.
MPARC will be having a Tailgate Swap Meet on March 27 in the parking lot of Fire Station 3 at 2676 Hayes Road, in Hayes. Click Here for a map to the Fire Station. We plan to get started around 1:00pm in the parking lot nearest the trees, on the Hayes Rd side. Talk-in frequency will be the 145.370 (- offset) repeater.
Since there will be a testing session going on the same day, this is a good opportunity to reach out to any potential or newly licensed hams and get them involved with ham radio. While it will not have the same feel as Frostfest or other hamfests, we hope this provides the hams in the Middle Peninsula area an opportunity to find something new for their shack, and chat about radio-related subjects.
Because COVID-19 is still an issue, we will take any necessary precautions to ensure that everyone remains safe. Anyone attending is encouraged to follow distancing guidelines, and to wear a mask if maintaining distance is not possible. The area of the parking lot we plan to use is large enough to allow anyone to gather without being too close together.
