Plan for COTN Appearance at Columbus Hamfest 2014

posted Jul 31, 2014, 3:17 PM by C. Matthew Curtin
The Central Ohio Traffic Net will maintain a table at the Columbus Hamfest to be held at the Aladdin Shrine Center on Saturday, August 2, 2014. Thanks to all of the volunteers who are helping to make this happen!

We encourage all COTN regulars to stop by the booth, say hello, and feel free to join in helping people to understand traffic handling. We'll be listening on 146.570 (DCS 023) for anyone who needs a talk-in (or talk-over) to find the booth. We'll be with all of the other vendor and club booths, and should be easy to find.
