Support HARTS in Establishing Communication Support Services Centre

HARTS had paid years of effort in application for a piece of government land for development of amateur radio communication services.  In early October 2014, a piece of land near Eastern Harbour Tunnel in Cha Kwo Ling Road, Yau Tong, was granted to HARTS by Lands Department in a nominal-rent short term tenancy.  We are preparing the construction work for Communication Support Service Centre (CSSC).  The construction projects include Construction of main gate and associated barrier, Clearance of grass and scrub, Site formation and construction of leading road and 6 parking spaces, Construction of a 0.5m fencing wall facing the Eastern Cross Harbour Tunnel, building a 2000 sq. ft. structure, Electrical installation, water supply and internal renovation of the structure, Submission of landscape proposal and associated horticulture works, Rental of portable toilet and etc.  The initial estimated budget for such construction work is not less than HK$300,000.

Without support from members, radio amateurs, general public and organizations, HARTS could not establish CSSC for development of radio communication services.  Please support HARTS by donationor material sponsorship.
