I don’t know yet if I’ll be able to attend, but for those in the coastal Georgia area, the Coastal Amateur Radio Society will be holding a swap meet and portable operation at Grayson Stadium (see map below) in Savannah on 3 May 2014 from 0800 to 1500. CARS will be selling excess antennas, coax, and other antennas and you’re invited to bring items for swap and sale as well. If you’re not in the coastal Georgia area, keep an ear out for them on the bands as W4LHS/P. Here’s the flyer for the event, feel free to share it around: swap n meet flyer
Talk-in will be available on the 147.330- (PL 203.5) and 442.700 repeaters for those not familiar with the Savannah area or those needing directions. The 147.330- repeater is located across the street from Grayson Stadium so it will be easy to use on a portable with low power. For those who enjoy using D-Star, the 144.940- and 440.5875+ D-Star repeaters are located close by and will be easy to use with portables (although I don’t know if anyone at the swap meet will be monitoring them).
