[edit] Scheduling

Next tailgates:

  • June 10, 2017 6:30am (sunrise 6:26)
  • January 13, 2018 7:30am (sunrise 7:18)

Typically, people are at the tailgate well before 7am (we won't be there before 6am). Usually by 10am, it is mostly social, and by 11am it is over. If the weather is exceptionally bad, people will start to leave by 9:30-10am. If the weather is exceptionally good, there will still be stragglers around noon.

The official campus map may be more up to date.

[edit] Description

Buy or sell electronics, radios, and computer hardware.

The Amateur Radio club is sponsoring a semiannual electronics swap meet / hamfest Saturday morning in the D1 parking lot (In front of HPA2 building). All are welcome. Amateur radio equipment and other computer and radio electronics will be for sale. No cost to attend or sell. Early attenders will see more bargains. There is also an equipment testing station to verify the functionality of equipment before purchase.
