Another Great Charlotte Hamfest in the Logbook

"THANK YOU" to all our Dealers, Flea Marketeers, Guest, and Volunteers who made this possible. Without you, it would not have been possible.

A special THANKS to Kay Craigie - N3KN, President of ARRL, for presenting the ARRL Forum along with Dennis - W4PWF (Roanoke Division Director), Jim - N2ZZ (Roanoke Division Vice Director), Karl - W4CHX (New NC Section Manager) and the rest of the ARRL staff.

Also thanks to our other great Forum presenters, Lou - N2TU (K9W DXpedition), Bob - K4UEE (FT5ZM DXpedition) and Bill - W4ZV (first American Novice DXCC).

Some highlights other than the Dealers and Flea Market area were:
The Youth Lounge by Toni (KK4TRH) and Patrick Fink (W4PFI) was well received by parents and youth, and even had a special visit from ARRL presidentKay Craigie (N3KN). The build your own 2/440 meter antenna by Bob - K9TMU was another great sucess with over 20 antennas being completed. Also the GoBox contest headed up by John - WB2NHQ had some great goboxes entered.
2014 Charlotte Hamfest GoBox Contest Results Thank you! to all of the following Hams who entered your GoBoxes in our Hamfest contest. Your efforts and participation was very encouraging. Current plans include a similar event in Charlotte Hamfest 2015. We’re thinking about adding credit for natural power, live on-air demonstration of digital modes, and items for personal safety while deployed. Come see us again next year.
