The Metropolitan Club

NFARL and our sponsors are pleased to be able to present an event to raise funds that will be used to encourage youth to get involved in amateur radio and related STEM technologies.

We hope you will be able to attend and enjoy a morning of visiting with fellow hams, listening to and interacting with our speakers, and potentially winning raffle prizes.

The event is open to all and admission is FREE thanks to the generosity of our sponsors ... and your generosity in purchasing raffle tickets.


This year, three outstanding speakers will join us and share with us their perspectives on ham radio.

A third speaker will be announced shortly.
