Local HAM pays it forward

During the spring and summer of 2022 the Central New York Amateur Radio Club started a 50/50 raffle. Selling tickets at local Hamfests, stores, business and racking up a good amount to split with the winner. It was a fun time and the club got the word out about Amateur Radio while selling tickets. Tickets were sold at the Field Day to any visitors that stopped by. Field day was a great success and has a post of its own.

A local Ham operator in Utica KC2IIJ (Mike Long) was the winner of the 50/50 split and being the kind of guy he is he turned around and donated it back to the club. What a way to pay it forward!

The club is planning on holding another 50/50 raffle next spring and summer. Thank you to everyone who bought tickets to help with the repeater and thanks to all who sold tickets.
