Target participants:

  • New hams to learn what a go box kit means and includes from a radio perspective.
  • Hams with an assembled kit to test and verify (hams uncertain if it works).
  • Hams needing suggestions and parts lists/venders of required equipment, programming.
  •  Hams needing simple connections and adaptors made (Coax, power poles, DIN cables wiring).

Support offered:

  • Information document with drawings and parts list to send out before the event so participants can order what they might need.
  • Email support to answer questions and supply information prior to the event.
  • Building assistance at the event, testing, programming, training.
