Weekly Saturday morning get-together

Please join us every Saturday morning for an informal get-together at the US Coast Guard Auxiliary Station in Fairfield. Everyone is welcome, club members and other hams as well as individuals interested in becoming a ham. People begin arriving around 9:30 AM & leave sometime after 11 AM. This is an opportunity to operate the club station and have "eyeball" contact with other hams.

The locations is at the US Coast Guard Auxiliary Station at the end of Turney Rd, Fairfield, CT 06824. During the summer season ask for a Radio Club pass at the guard shack unless you have a Fairfield beach sticker.
