UPDATE: Added minimum bids and bid increments. Also changed the end time of the auction to 7:15PM. As announced at our October Club Meeting, we will have a Silent Auction to benefit the MARC at our November 2021 Club Meeting. The items up for auction were generously donated to support MARC from the family of Craig Behrens, NM4T who became a silent key in 2020. Jerry, N4EO notes that “Craig was a dear friend and QRP amigo.

We were fortunate to have Bob Heil, K9EID join us via Zoom at our October club meeting. Bob spoke about how his experience in amateur radio tuned into a career creating sound systems for musicians such as The Grateful Dead, The Who, and Peter Frampton, and the creation of his company, Heil Sound. Special thanks to Justin, K4LEN for making the arrangements for Bob to join us. We look forward to having Bob join us again to go into greater detail discussing antennas and other topics.
