For those of you closer to the southern part of the state ...

To celebrate the first anniversary of the refurbishment of the W2ZQ Amateur Radio station at Mercer County Airport, the Delaware Valley Radio Association will be hosting an open house there on Sunday August 13th from 1 to 5 PM.

The modern shack features two complete HF stations utilizing two main towers (one at 100 ft. and the other at 50ft.) with beams for 40M thru 10m. They also have a complete VHF station available. The facility also houses the 146.67 MHz repeater. All visitors are encouraged to operate the station.

All hams and the public are welcome to tour and use the modern facility, which the DVRA has used since 1953. They'll also have on display historical documents from the ARRL and others dating back to the clubs founding in 1930.

They'll be cooking burgers and hot dogs and providing drinks so please RSVP to station@w2zq.com to help us order the correct amount of food. There is no fee to attend.

The DVRA club shack is located at the Southeast corner of I-95 (Exit 2) and Bear Tavern Road in West Trenton NJ. Directions and other club information can be found at www.w2zq.com.
