So many amateur radio clubs that miss the ability to run a "hamfest" no thanks to COVID have become very creative in the past year.
Just outside of the official boundaries of the Hudson Valley is the Long Island Mobile Amateur Radio Club (LIMARC) and is one of the largest clubs in the United States.
Since they have a HUGE network of expensive repeaters to maintain, they count on income generated from these social selling and buying events to keep things running.
HVDN loves to support anything that LIMARC does, since a few of us (K2GOG and W2NDG) were very active in that great club before we moved off of Long Island and up to the Hudson Valley.
Join us on February 28th at 9:00 AM Eastern for the 2nd time that LIMARC is doing a Virtual Hamfest.
Attendance is free and details are here at https://limarc.org/virtual-hamfest/
There are some excellent door prizes offered by many great organizations to help create more attendance, so feel free to check it out and see if we can get past the 1,000 person attendance limit the last Sunday of February.
Also, please do not forget about what we hope will be a return to normalcy with a real hamfest by visiting https://hudsonvalleyhamfest.com/index.html and take our interest survey.
