If you were unable to attend the Nov 11 ham fest,  here is a video of the event.  SPARC broke records in attendance and also with 50 sellers.  Watch for the drone flyover too.

Click here for SPARC Fest 2017 video.

Some of the FLAM Group showed up to sell or buy ham gear.  WORM Fest (Spring) and SPARC Fest (Fall) are free to enter and free to sell.  The turnout of sellers and buyers this year was one of the best. Might have even been bigger that TARC Fest.

If you haven’t already joined “HamFest365” on Facebook, take a look today.  This FB page is filled with amazing radios, many of which are for sale.  It is a site with many pictures of vintage gear, much of which is seldom seen.

The site was established in January of 2017 by Elizabeth Wilson, K4GHT.  The group page already has over 275 followers.  HamFest365 is a one-of-kind tribute to the sale of vintage radio gear, amateur, commercial, military and homebrew – open to all for the purpose of selling equipment.

Here’s an example:
