(New updated spreadsheet posted on Mar28)

Get ready for the Equipment sale during the upcoming April 6th meeting! This year to bid/buy/win you either need to be current on member dues OR pay $5 at the door. Yes, you can pay your dues at the door too.

Justin/KC3BJT will be present and accepting cash or credit cards for all transactions.

Yes, we accept consignment items on a space available basis, but please come early so we can accommodate you. Also please email Ike/W3IKE (w3ike@yahoo.com) ASAP and let him know what you plan to bring so we can add it to the spreadsheet.

The featured item will be a complete, working Kenwood TS-520S station for $200.00. This item will include the HF transceiver, remote VFO, Speaker, desk mic, station monitor, manuals on a CD and will be set aside for NEW hams only.

The Equipment sale procedure is located here. The spreadsheet of available items is located here. (Both of these opened fine in Libreoffice too, but please let me know if you have any issues.)

Expect perhaps one more spreadsheet update from Ike before the auction.

Please consider signing up for Amazon Smile. Signing up is easy, it costs you nothing, and the AARC gets a tiny sliver of profit that would otherwise go right into Jeff Bezo's pocket. Step by step instructions here.
