Jim Fogle, KC2YRV, proposed the idea for this event in the
latter part of 2010 and was met with some opposition by those who said, “It
couldn’t be done” or “It’s a lot of work.”
Wrong words to have said to Jim. He always met a challenge head on. He put a team together and got the word out
by traveling to various other Hamfests, spending many hours on the
phone, etc. While getting ready for an
Amateur Radio Event in September of 2011, Jim suffered a fatal heart
attack. His wife Lynn, KC2ZJW, and the
rest of the team have worked hard to keep Jim's dream alive and help this Hamfest
grow bigger and better. SCARA felt it
was only right to name the event in his honor.

this year or for the first time!
