How to Bid

Bids will be taken via email to . Please use a subject of “Bidding on – Item Name”. Include the bid amount, your name/callsign in the message. I will reference the current club roster for each bidder.

Bids shall be in whole dollar amounts. No sense in dealing in cents. Also, keep in mind that the updates will only be daily, so you may not know who else bid against you. If a bid is received of the same amount for the same item, the first received bid will be upheld.

Updates for the bidding scoreboard (at the bottom of this page) will be posted at least daily after 8pm with the amount, and call sign of the current high bid.

Bidding will start March 1st, 2023,  and end at 11:59PM EST on March 15th, 2023. Winners will be posted, and notified via email on March 16th, 2023. Payments will be made to the club treasurer within 5 days of notification of winning, and plans will be made for you to receive the item. We will not ship the items.
