Silent Auction at the January Meeting (Mon., Jan. 6th) [UPDATED]

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.

Last Chance Amateur Equipment Auction

Hi folks!

We had a silent auction of Amateur Radio equipment at the December club meeting. In preparing to sell the remaining equipment on Ebay, we realized there was some extra equipment which wasn’t on the inventory for the auction. We decided to do a 2nd silent auction at the January meeting. This will be our true “last chance” auction.

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.

I will be sending out an updated inventory list for perusal before the meeting.

Please plan to attend the January meeting at the Red Cross (940 Grove Road) on Mon., Jan. 6th, 2020 @ 7pm.

Any questions, let me know!
