Members of the Whitman Amateur Radio Club are gearing up for the annual Marshfield Fair with a special event station and Amateur Radio exhibit booth August 18-27. Bill Hayden, N1FRE is coordinating the event. He has secured passes for all volunteers who have signed up thus far. According to Hayden, most of the four-hour shifts have been filled, but he is still soliciting volunteers to staff the event.
As in years past, hams will explain Amateur Radio to the public and introduce youngsters to Morse code. Last year, the crew made approximately 150 contacts with 31 states, 15 foreign countries, and two Canadian provinces.
