HAM-COM 2017 will be here before you know it. It will be held at the Irving Convention Center Friday June 9th and 10th 2017. See their website for event information. General admission tickets are $10 on the days of the event.
The Dallas Amateur Radio Club will be operating an informational table on both days. This is an informational table, therefore, we are not authorized to sell items from our table since we are not charged for this table. You may, however, drop by and show us the wonderful new radios and/or toys that you have purchased.
We would appreciate your help in keeping our table staffed during the event. Those of you who have helped staff our table during the event know that working at the table is hardly work at all; it’s just an hour or two off your feet, making friendly conversations and answering questions about the DARC. We’ll be trying to keep the table operational between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm for both days.
If you can volunteer to help for an hour or more on either day (or both) please fill out the contact form here and let us know. or if you are a DARC member, you may also register using http://www.hamclubonline.com Sign in with your callsign and select Club Calendar, Ham-Com and then select Sign-Up on the right side of the screen. This will allow you to make a selection and you may also leave a note of specific times or other important comments.
This is a lot of fun and you can meet a lot of people and purchase good merchandise from many vendors – some of whom you only see once a year.
Thanks to Ham-Com for sponsoring this event and allowing the DARC an opportunity to participate.
