The George County Mississippi Amateur Radio Emergency Service (A.R.E.S.) Group will be hosting the “Scratching Post” QSL Party in the Lucedale City Park on Saturday, September 3rd, 2022.
Set up will be from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m.
The event will begin at 8:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.
We will be operating under the Special Event Callsign of K5K.
This event is to honor Lucedale’s famous Scratching Post and the objective of this event is to promote the Amateur Radio hobby in our area and to allow anyone wishing to participate to get some amateur radio operating experience.
There will be a custom designed Special Event QSL Card, which will be a unique collector’s item and this Special Event QSL card will be exchanged with fellow operators who make contact with us during this Special Event.
This is a FREE event, open to the public, so we hope everyone can come out and join us for this Special Event and learn what amateur radio is all about!
