The Alford Memorial Radio
Club has several business sponsors that provide us with monthly door
prizes and gift certificates, a web site, and many other things that
help our club run smoothly and save us money. This month we are
honoring Ham Radio Outlet for all of the financial and
technical support they have given our club over the years. Many thanks
to Mark, Dale, Josh, David, and the rest of the helpful crew at HRO for
all they do for us. It is greatly appreciated.

2014 Stone Mountain Hamfest, November 1 & 2, 2014
The Alford Memorial Radio Club Hamfest will be on November 1-2, but
there is a good bit of work to do in the days before the hamfest.
Thursday and Friday (October 30 & 31) are our setup days where the boneyard and
commercial tailgating spaces are marked with lime,
and some of the vendor spaces are setup in the main exhibit hall. On
Friday, the tables are setup in the Flea Market so at noon on Friday
we can start accepting vendors into their Flea Market Spaces,
Commercial Tailgating spaces, and main hall vendors can start setting
up. Friday from Noon till 9pm we need extra folks to help direct
vendors where to go and help them setup. We also need a few extra folks
to provide security for all of the vendor's items. On Saturday and
Sunday we need folks to work the event and on Sunday afternoon, we need
folks to help us clean up the fairgrounds, before we lock the gates
behind us. It is a busy event but we are up to handling it.
Wesley Walk this Saturday, October 25, 2014
If you're going to help with this event, be at the First United Methodist Church in the Village of Stone Mountain this Saturday, October 25th by 7:00AM.
You will be assigned a job to help with this worthy cause. We will be using the 146.76 - (PL 107.2) repeater for all of our communications.
The event should wrap up shortly after 12 Noon so you'll have the rest of what looks to be a beautiful weekend ahead of you to enjoy.
Bud Roeske, KE4IPX - SK
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of one our
members. Bud Roeske, KE4IPX, passed away late Saturday night
October 11, 2014. Bud was 62. He had been putting up a
valiant fight against throat and lung cancer for many months and seemed
to be winning the battle. Bud was the elmer and the reason behind
our club President, Steve, N4TTY, getting his ham license back in
1998. Services for Bud were private with only a few family
members present. Per his wishes his remains were cremated.
You will be missed old friend.
