Come to the Berryville Hamfest this Sunday at the Clarke County Fairgrounds and buy a chance (buy LOTS of chances!) for this Kenwood 950S with the DSP 10 option. Also included with the radio is a Rigblaster plug and play. This equipment is in excellent working order. Manuals and original boxes are included.
This drawing is used to support SVARC and is not part of the regular hamfest drawing. The winner must be present for the drawing to be held before noon.
This event is what our club relies on to cover the costs of our clubhouse, our club equipment, our community support, and our various activities. So if there’s ever a time your club needs your help, it’s this weekend! Continue reading “All Hands On Deck For The Berryville Hamfest This Weekend!”
