Swap & Shop

Hiawatha Amateur Radio Association of Marquette County

Swap & Shop Saturday September 16, 2023

We are hoping that the beginning of summer is soon, and the end of summer is a long way off in the distance, but we’d like you to mark your calendar now for our annual Swap & Shop that has been moved to September 16, 2023. For ages we held this event in February, but plans are to host it annually in the fall.

Other than that, everything is the same. Location is the Negaunee Township Hall on M-35 just south of the U.S. Hwy 41 and M-35 intersection. Times are 0900 to 1300. We’ll have lots of door prizes and a 50/50 drawing. Refreshments will be available.

Here is only a small sample of what will be on our club table. I realize it is scheduled down the road somewhat but please mark your calendar now, so you don’t miss it. Please let your club members be aware of our upcoming Swap & Shop.

Also does anyone need a sales table at our event? Contact Greg KI8AF at
