Another successful Hamfest in the books

Thanks to all who attended the 2023 Findlay Radio Club Hamfest. Since this was my first year as manager, it was great to meet all the wonderful vendors and guests. We tried some new things this year, good and bad, but we came away with some ideas for next year.
As our club continues to change and the participants change, I’d like to say we will continue to be the hamfest that’s always the Sunday after Labor Day. Clearly time will tell, but we hope to at least be able to celebrate our 99th and 100th birthday as a radio club. I hope to see you all on September 8th, 2024, and September 7th, 2025.
Carl Navarro, KE8RVH, Hamfest ’23 chairman with a whole lot of help from our Findlay Radio Club members

so come prepared to ask questions.

The format of the class will be a general discussion on the material in
the books. it is recommended that you attend the entire session (even
though you may already have the Tech or General) for review. The Tech
students are welcome to stick around for the General/Extra class
material. It won't hurt!
