We are now Looking Forward to December. Amazing. In place of our regular second Friday Club meeting, we’ll be having our annual end-of-year holiday celebration. Once again, we’ll be having a Feliz Navidad Party orchestrated by Gerry WA6E. Thank you, Gerry! Festivities begin Saturday, December 9 beginning at 5 PM. Please sign up and RSVP if you are planning to attend.
As we settle in for Thanksgiving, let us remember to give thanks to all those we love and care about. SFARC would like to wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving.
ED FONG JOINS SFARC NOVEMBER 29TH TO SHOW THE IN’S AND OUT’S OF THE USDX QRP TRANSCEIVER
Come learn about the uSDX transceiver, how it works, and why it’s such a cool QRP rig! Join SFARC in the club Zoom room on November 29th @ 7:30 PM PT. Ed is an entertaining speaker with great information to share about this transceiver.
If you’re an SFARC member, we’ll be giving away three at the Christmas party coming up on December 9th. Everyone is invited to attend this special presentation with Dr. Fong, so help SFARC spread the word!
THE HUNT IS ON, NOVEMBER 25th!
Join SFARC for the “treasure hunts of all treasure hunts“. If you’ve never joined us for Fox Hunt, you’re missing out!!! It’s the holiday season and this is a great event to bring family members, pets, neighbors, friends, and grandkids out for a morning walk in the park and have some fun. If you don’t have radio direction experience, gear, or even an amateur license, DON’T FRET, ALL ARE WELCOME, NO EQUIPMENT OR EXPERIENCE REQUIRE.
IT’S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE…
THE CHRISTMAS PARTY IS ALMOST HERE!
Please remember to bring non-perishable food items for the local Auburn community.
We have over 70 GIFTS that you have a chance to win BUT you have to be present to win. One ticket will be given to each club member and one ticket to one adult guest of that member.
CALLING ALL HUNTERS!
The hunt is on October 28th, 2023 with Fox Tender Doug (W2VX). We’re going to meet after the SFARC Club Breakfast at the pre-hunt meeting (9 AM in the Mel’s parking lot). If you’ve never done a fox hunt before, rusty, or if you don’t have radio direction finder equipment, ask to ride along with an experienced Fox Hunter! Team hunting is a blast!
