The Southeast Iowa Hamfest, presented by the Muscatine and Washington Area Amateur Radio Clubs, in West Liberty, Iowa will feature a "Peoples Choice Go-Kit Contest" with a prize of a $50 ARRL Gift Certificate.
A Go-Kit is a portable amateur radio station which the radio amateur can take when asked to go to an event which needs support with radio communication. It can be as small or large as desired. The Go-Kit must be completely self-contained. To enter, simply bring your Go-Kit to the Southeast Iowa Hamfest at the Muscatine County Fairgrounds in West Liberty, Iowa by 8:00am on Sunday, October 6, 2013. Attendees will have the chance to vote for their favorite entry. The winner will be announced at Noon. For more information and to RSVP, contact Tom Brehmer, N0LOH, at n0loh@live.com. (Persons entering the Go-Kit Contest will be required to pay admission to the hamfest.) http://www.kc0aqs.org/hamfest.html
