Marshfield Fair Amateur Radio Exhibit—A Resounding Success!

Marshfield Fair Special Events QSL cardFor ten days in August, members of the Whitman Amateur Radio Club staffed a special event station and Amateur Radio exhibit booth at the annual Marshfield Fair. Seventeen club members and four area hams volunteered for three-hour shifts, explaining Amateur Radio to the public and introducing youngsters to Morse code. The crew made approximately 150 contacts with 31 states, 15 foreign countries, and two Canadian provinces.

WARC has produced a Marshfield Fair special edition of its newsletter including lots of color photos and descriptions of the special events station and exhibit.
