2011 Clovis Amateur Radio and Electronics Swapmeet
The 2011 Clovis Swap was well attended by valley hams. The rain from the previous night did seem to keep some sellers away but there were plenty of deals to be had. There was also plenty of ragchew sessions across the parking lot while the deals were happening.
Thank you everyone who attended the event. Hope to see you all next year.

Clovis Amateur Radio and Electronics Swapmeet for 2011
CARP’s big fundraising event is the Phantom Fireworks Stand. Funds raised support the club by paying for insurance, room rental, repeater maintenance, site rental, meeting supplies, parties, contest excursions, etc. Please help support YOUR club by volunteering to work some time at the stand. If you are not able to volunteer, at least support the club by purchasing your fireworks from us!
The Fireworks stand is located on Herndon just east of Clovis Avenue on in the dirt lot on the north side of the street between McDonalds and Carl’s Jr.
CARP Net Check-in Bonus Drawing for a Dual Band HT
For every validated check-in to the CARP Net between July 7 and November 24, 2011, CARP Members will earn a drawing ticket for the HT to be given away at the CARP Christmas Party.
You can not purchase tickets for this special drawing, they can only be earned by CARP Members for checking into the weekly CARP Net. The night of the CARP Christmas Party members will receive one ticket for each validated Net check-in made by that member during the specified period for the special drawing. The prize for this drawing will be a WOUXUN KG-UVD1P VHF / UHF Dual Band Hand Held radio!
Due to unseasonable weather CARP’s excursion for the June VHF QSO party has been moved. The new location is Pine Ridge School at the top of the 4-lane. We will be setting up on the landing just above the school Saturday morning.
