Newcomerstown 2019 Gateway to Fall Festival

Last year the club and ARES participated in an amateur radio demonstration at the Gateway to Fall Festival in Newcomerstown on August 17th. As part of the "Safety City" program at the festival, Steve AA8BN, Will KC8PUW, Betty KC8SXL, and Heinz KB8VIP introduced folks to ARES and the many benefits of amateur radio including sending out Radiograms for the public. Randy KL7RF assisted by relaying radiograms and talking with the guests on the air. Here is Betty KC8SXL introducing Arazelia, Gnattenhutten Pioneer Days Attending Princess, to ham radio and giving her a chance to talk on VHF for the first time.
