Hamfest Schedule 2008 - 2009

Hamfest Schedule If you tried to call us, 570-888-2751, and got our machine, it may mean we are at one of the following Hamfests. (A Hamfest is a Social Gathering, Swap Meet, Tech Fleamarket, etc. dedicated to Amateur Radio.) It isn't an exclusive event, tho. Check one out. You may love it. You will find New, used, refurbished electronics and computer equipment. Everything from Rare, Antique Radios to Modern State of the Art goods.
