The Tryon Amateur Radio Club will be present at the Rail Fest on August 8th, 2009 (rain date August 9th). We will begin event station set-up at approximately 8:30am.
Our event station will be located in the parking lot between the Cayadetta Creek and Kingsboro Towers on Frontage Road.
We will have HF, VHF and UHF radios to demonstrate our hobby to the community. Please come visit us and participate. Flyers with literature will be distributed among the visitors.
Admission to the Rail Fest is free, but donations of non-perishable food items will be collected all day and will benefit the FulMont Community Action Agency.
