Chattanooga Amateur Radio Club

"Discover the magic and camaraderie of amateur radio!"

Peel & Stick Party

Last night (October 5, 2016) saw a group of dedicated volunteers affix almost 7,000 mailing labels to hamfest postcards.  Those postcards become the personal invitation to amateur radio operators around the area and region to attend Hamfest Chattanooga 2016.  The postcards are a major component in getting the word out to individual hams and ham clubs.

Leading up to our postcard effort, were several trips to the Bulk Mail Unit of the Post Office to make sure that we do the process correctly and to prepare a flowchart of what we need to do. The flowchart becomes another part of our “recipe” for a successful hamfest which we have been developing over the last couple of years.  By better documenting the steps and work, we can better gauge the level of effort that it takes to make our hamfests successful.

Volunteers Harriet Schroeder, Phil Mullins, Barclay (Mac) Thomas, Robert Berman, Roland & Karen Witt, Tim Simmons, Brian Simms, Ben & Dot Timmerman, Tyler Smith, and Lou Hudson worked hard to knock out the postcards in record time.

Our hats are off to the many volunteers that work to support our hamfests and to the many volunteers that do whatever is asked of them.
