Richland County Fair 2013

It was a great weekend for the annual Richland County fair. The Pine Valley Repeater ARC set up our EMCOMM trailer and equipment in a prime location for people to visit our site and to learn more about Amateur Radio.

Many people stopped to chat with PVR members who were on hand to meet and greet them, and to give answers to many very interesting questions.

PVR will be sponsoring an entry level Technician license class in October, and several visitors expressed an interest in becoming a member of the class which will be taught by Bob Naegele, W9MZ. We hope they will follow through on their interest.

Following are a few photos of our setup at the Fair:
