Sunrise St. Quartzsite Quartzfest* planned for Jan. 15-25, 2013 By Shanana Rain Golden-Bear The organizers for Quartzfest announced the dates for this year���s Ham Radio gathering in Quartzsite. The annual educational 10 day amateur Radio/RV campout will be held Jan 15 ��� 25, 2013 in the ���short term��� BLM Road Runner area, right off of US 95 camping area, just 6 miles south of Quartzsite.

The Focus of Quartzfest* is to provide an Amateur Radio and RV Educational Experience like no other in the world on a myriad of related topics.

During the 10 days of Quartzfest* we���ll also have many craft and informational talks for the YL���s [ham talk for wife/Young Lady] and those not interested in HAM or RV Stuff.��� Attendance of the 2012 Quartzfest* was 663. They are not a Club or Organization and have no of���cers, members or dues. Quartzfest is put on solely by its volunteer Organizer(s). Knowing Quartzfest generates no money, the speakers and presenters for seminars and workshops all donate their time as well. Weed said, ���The BLM will not allow any commercial activity on their land but welcomes our presentation of as much knowledge as possible. Likewise, December 5, 2012 BLM rules don���t allow us to make one penny more than actual expenses incurred in planning and organizing and is FREE of charge for ALL to attend.��� Opening Ceremony will be on Tuesday January 15th and will of���cially end with the���Last Hoorah Cookout on the Coals��� on Friday afternoon January 25th. They���ll have a Farewell Lunch cookout after the Yard Sale on Friday the 25th so folks will have a chance to say ���Farewell ���til Next Year��� to those heading out to Palm Springs for the Desert Rats Hamfest on the 26th. If you���re not an amateur radio operator yet, or want to upgrade your license to a higher class, you���ll be able to take your exams right there at Quartzfest* and have your call sign or upgrade from the FCC by weeks end. ���If you���ve never attended Quartzfest* you���ve missed out on a HAM Experience of a lifetime��� said Weed. ���If you don���t know anyone at Quartzfest* when you get there, by the time the week is over, you���ll have friendships that will last forever.��� Hams Talk in on 146.55 simplex Steve KO4QT and Angel Weed One of a kind hand dyed/hand painted Jackets PLUS lots of matching accessories TYSON WELLS CENTRE FRONT ROW - E.
