The Annual Firecracker Hamfest, sponsored by The Rowan Amateur Radio Society will begin Rain or Shine TOMORROW Saturday July 12, 2014 at 8:00 AM at the Salisbury Civic Center in Downtown Salisbury NC. This is a family friendly event so bring the whole family, tickets are only $5 at the door and children, under age 12 and accompanied by an adult get in free. For more information see our Hamfest Page http://www.rowanars.org/firecracker-hamfest/.

On Saturday May 31, 2014 at 0900 the Rowan Amateur Radio Society will hold it’s monthly Foxhunt (Also known as Radio Direction Finding or Transmitter Hunting), starting at the Rowan County Fairgrounds. In the event the Fairgrounds are in use, we will move to the parking lot at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College.

This will not be a competitive event like most of our Foxhunts, instead this will be a training event primarily for the US Marine Corps., but we encourage anyone interested to please join us. If you are new to Foxhunting this would be the perfect opportunity to learn what it is all about.

This is no charge or fees to join in on the fun and the weather looks like it might just cooperate.
