All MDARC Members and Friends,

We are pleased to tell you that again this year, The Mount Diablo Amateur Radio Club is hosting another auction.

Each year we all have a great time at our auction and together we help clear out your ham junk box, put a little jingle in your pocket, and support all the great endeavors of MDARC. Please start gathering your gear for another great auction!

This will be a hybrid auction. You may choose to participate in all of the activities live at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, 1035 Carol Lane, Lafayette, CA 94549 OR you can join us virtually via Zoom from any place with an internet connection.

Sellers & Donations:

If you have an item that you would like to donate to MDARC, please contact Mike Warren, W6MEW, mwarren2[at]comcast[dot]net or Dick Wade, WM6G,

If you have an item that you would like to sell, you may either bring it to the auction or you may sell it virtually. For all items, whether brought to the auction or kept at home, simply take a picture of it, along with a written title and description, optional minimum bid, and your contact information. Please send that information to Mike Warren, W6MEW at mwarren2[at]comcast[dot]net.

In the past, we have used Auction Item Cards and you may use them as a reference.

See the guideline image below.


Simply come and join us the night of the auction either in person or virtually by “raising” your Zoom hand to indicate that you wish to bid. The auctioneer or assistant auctioneer will acknowledge your bid. If you are not noticed on Zoom, please send a note to “everyone” on the Zoom chat indicating that you would like to bid.

After the bidding on each item is successfully closed, our cashiers will tabulate the final bids and send a PayPal invoice if you are on Zoom or with cash, check, or PayPal payment if you are physically present. PayPal allows you to pay with a credit card, debit card, or from your bank account – without having to have a PayPal account if you wish.

If you have any questions, please contact us at or
