WARC Spring Tailgate 2023 Wrap-up

Thanks to Alan Curtis – KQ4ELM – for this post

Thanks to everyone for another successful Wiregrass Amateur Radio Club (WARC) event. It was a great Saturday morning. We had nine vendors, and a lot of good conversations. There were operators making contacts on CW in multiple countries, and after a great lunch our team went into testing for new licenses and upgrades. It was just a great day all in all and the weather was perfect.

We started our day with breakfast at Hardee’s with the usual suspects, making any last-minute arrangements, then off to the tailgate.

Area Vendor’s and Operators set up their tables and tailgates with radios, antennas, meters, and other goods.

There were four prizes for the hourly drawing with the grand prize being this new Yaesu FT-2980.  Oh yes, did I mention there were free cookies and tea?

Here is one of our members making contacts around the world with his portable CW equipment.

When lunch was over our VE team went to work setting up for today’s testing.

They had three candidates pass, (1) new Technician (1) upgrade to General and (1) upgrade to Amateur Extra.

Thanks for all the help from the club members and the vendors.

We at WARC hope to see you there next year!

    I need to find out if there is anyone who repairs tube amplifiers. I have a heath kit SB-221 that needs some help. I live 9 miles north of Columbia.
