As previously announced, at the January meeting we will have a silent auction of Amateur Radios and related equipment. This will be the last chance to bid on equipment from the Red Cross Ready Room before the remaining equipment is sold off. All proceeds from the auction and sale of the remaining equipment will go towards funding the rebuilding of the Ready Room with modern, working radios & equipment.

All of the equipment has been laid out with accompanying cables, manuals, and accessories wrapped up for easy viewing. We also did some additional equipment testing, and the test results will be included on a sheet for each item.

Please come to January’s meeting and bid on any equipment you would like to purchase! The meeting will be at the Red Cross (940 Grove Road) on Mon., Jan. 6th, 2020 @ 7pm.
