The Durham FM Association is a group of friendly amateur radio operators interested in all aspects of amateur radio service. Members from Durham, Chapel Hill, Raleigh, and surrounding areas of North Carolina enjoy operating through VHF and UHF repeaters sponsored and maintained by the club.
Currently the club operates FM voice repeaters on 145.450-, 147.225+, 224.260-, 444.100+ PL:100.0 and 444.450+ MHz (the plus and minus indicating standard offsets on the respective bands).
We normally meet on the 1st Tuesday of the month (see Calendar) with Dinner (optional) at 6:00pm and the business meeting and program at 7:00pm. We are meeting at Bullock's BBQ, on 3330 Quebec Drive in Durham. [click for map] (For more info on each meeting, check the Calendar entry.)
Our club runs a great hamfest toward the end of May each year. This year DurHamFest was at a new location! Set just off I85 in Durham, it was in the Durham Public Schools Staff Development Center at 2107 Hillandale Road Durham, NC 27705. Dealers sell new and used equipment, books, and parts in an air-conditioned facility. Outside, "tailgaters" also offer a wide variety of used, lightly used and some new equipment and supplies. Besides the buying, selling, and trading, door prizes and fellowship with old and new friends make this a really fun event. (Click on the DurHamFest tab above for more information.)
