General Meeting – May 19, 2017 – Old Timers Night

Old Timers Night is an annual event that occurs at our May SBARC Club Meeting on Friday, May 19, 2017. It is a special time where we can once more meet and greet our “most experienced” amateurs. These folks have paid their dues and are entitled to boast about all their experiences in the great hobby of Amateur Radio.

This special Club meeting gives us youngsters a chance to be in the presence of some Amateur Radio operators who helped form our hobby, back when Spark Gaps were fading into history and AM modulation was first being used. Today we take things like repeaters and microphones for granted.

We’re also having a special raffle this month. We’re raffling off a brand new Kenwood TM-281A 2m mobile radio. It boasts 65 watts of power, 200 programmable alpha-numeric channels and a front facing speaker. Kenwood radios are well known for their reliability and great audio. These radios are currently selling for $172.00 on Amazon, so come buy a few raffle tickets and you might be the lucky member that takes this home. This radio will be given away at the meeting, so someone will go home with a very nice raffle prize.

SBARC General Club Meetings are held at the Goleta Union School District at 401 N. Fairview Ave. in Goleta, right across the street from the Goleta Library. The meeting begins Friday, May 19, 2017 at 7:30 PM but come early and look at all the old stuff your old friends have brought for you to see.

Post expires at 1:00am on Saturday May 20th, 2017 but will still be available in the archives.
