2021 Union County Amateur Radio Club Trunkfest Canceled

We are sad to announce that the 2021 Union County Amateur Radio Trunkfest will not be held this year. The uncertainty of how the pandemic was going to be this year made it impossible to plan for having it in June. We were looking at having it in October but there weren't enough club members available to help with putting it on.

This site was created for other Union County/neighbouring county hams or people who are interested in Amateur Radio.

The Union County Amateur Radio Club meets at 7pm on the first Tuesday of each month.
Meetings are held at:
