A Small Town 4th of July Operating Event

summerhaven flagOn Tuesday July 4th we will be operating at 8,000 feet at Hanna and Ross's cabin on Mount Lemmon.

This is an unusual event in that it will offer the chance to promote Amateur Radio and to have some fun during the annual Summerhaven 4th of July parade. This is a great patriotic event for everyone to participate by entering the parade or simply watch. 

We will start HF operations at 0800. Operators interested in taking part in the parade will assemble at 1100 for the parade. The parade is short lasting about an hour.

  • Parade entrants can:
  • Drive a vehicle- radio equipped or not
  • Ride a bicycle or motorcycle
  • Walk using HT equipment.

After the Parade we will assemble back at the cabin for burgers, hot dogs and ice cream. HF operation will continue as long as there in interest.

A great turnout could really help our club and Amateur Radio.

Please let us know if you are attending by sending me an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. so we can plan accordingly. We need to provide food and a list of entrants to the parade organizers.
