January 2023


We held our annual Winterfest on Friday, January 20, 2023 at Papa Joe’s restaurant in Orland Park. We had a nice turnout with 26 Metro members and guests attending. We were able to use their banquet room which allowed for more privacy and room to move around.  Our president, Jim N9TK passed out free door prize tickets and offered tickets to those interested in our 50-50 raffle. We sat down for a nice meal. There was more time later to mingle with everyone attending. It seemed like everyone had a good time.

We would like to thank our prize donors including K9LA, our ARRL Central Division director,  DX Engineering,  MFJ Enterprises,  KB3IFH QSL’s, The Daily DX, W9LNQ and Laura for the lady prizes.  Everyone won something.

Some photos of the the event are attached.

We hope to see everyone again at next year’s WINTERFEST.
