Thanks to Hal-WA5HC, we (the amateur radio operators in the panhandle) have the opportunity to setup a booth and demonstrate amateur radio to visitors at this year’s Pensacola Interstate Fair. The fair runs from October 21-31, 2021. The hours Mon-Fri are 4:00-10:00P and on the weekends 11:00-10:00PM.
We need your help! To take advantage of this FREE opportunity, we must staff the demo booth for the duration of the event. We have created an online signup that you can sign up for as many shifts as you wish. The weekends have been split up into a morning and evening shift. We’d like to have 3 volunteers during each shift if at all possible. We plan on having a special event station as well to commemorate the event.
At least one operator from each shift will need to bring an HF, VHF, and UHF radio as we can’t leave equipment on site. We will coordinate with the teams as we get closer to the event. All clubs in the area are invited to share their brochures, etc. with us so we can direct folks to the club located nearest them.
