As in the past, some of New Jersey's most highly prized and valuable ham radio related items will be available at the live auction and the post-auction indoor flea market.


Admission just $8.  Children and unlicensed non-buyers free.


Time -  doors open for sellers and buyers at 12:30pm.


Live Auction -  begins at 1:30pm and the live Auction, plus after-auction flea market, will end promptly at 4:30pm.


Again as it has been since 2010: No commission will be taken on items sold by auction. NPARC will transfer funds from buyers to sellers directly.


Flea Market: - will run for 30 minutes after the conclusion of the auction.


Location - Salt Brook School,  40 Maple Street, New Providence NJ.  Driving directions


Talk-in on W2LI Repeater:  147.255 MHz  +.600 PL 141.3.  If weather is bad check in with W2LI to get status of auction.  The bad weather date is Saturday, March 1, 2020. Time to be determined if needed.


Light refreshments (beverages, subs, cookies) available at reasonable prices.


Auction Manager for 2020: Paul Wolfmeyer, W2PTP.  Paul can be reached at pwolfmeyer (at) att (dot) net.

Rules of participation: 

Anyone paying the admission fee may sell and/or bid on any item.


Again as it has been since 2010: No commission will be taken on items sold by auction. NPARC will transfer funds directly from buyer to seller.


Sellers: please visit the Sellers' Instructions page.


Owners may indicate a minimum acceptable bid or "reserve" for any auction item. While the auctioneer may initiate bidding at a price lower than the reserve, the final bid must be equal to or higher than the reserve for it to be sold, unless the owner changes his/her mind and agrees to the "below reserve" offer.


Donated items for the auction are appreciated from non-club members and club members alike. Proceeds will go to the NPARC club treasury.


All attendees may set up a post-auction flea market table. A limited number of tables will be available to share on a "first come, first served" basis. No fee or club commissions for flea-market sales.


If you bring something and it doesn't sell during the auction, you must either take it away at the end of the event or sell direct to a willing party during the flea market.


Have fun!
