This ham got his ticket the old fashioned way.

Nick, thanks so much for sharing the photos.  It was obviously a GREAT fest, like those we were accustomed to a couple years ago.  Health issues prevented me from attending this year, but next August I hope to make the trip to Berryville, not only to peruse the boat anchors, but also to visit with all the AMers in attendance.

Thanks Jim for all the great pictures of the Fester.  Its definitely going to be on my list to attend next year.  This is one of the best showing of BA gear I have seen recently at a Hamfest.

I concur. It was a great 'fest. Hamfest staff and locals are friendly and thank you for coming. The photos do it justice; they're exactly what I saw. More good stuff at this one than Sussex County NJ two weeks ago, and Suzzicks was no slouch. Once again I came away empty-handed. My warehouse is full. I'm reduced to looking for a few very specific items. If your preference is for restored turnkey receivers W3HM and W3JN had the nicest stuff there. There was a lot of other old stuff  ranging from basket cases to good condition/seemingly complete. Amazing how much of it was selling. Pent-up demand? The weather was unseasonably cool and stayed dry until 9AM when some rain finally arrived. By that time I'd seen the entire flea market 3 times as is customary. It was time to go. Missed the Ruritan BBQ chicken!

It's been several years since I've been to a hamfest with that many goodies! That Murphy receiver looked tempting... Smiley

Thanks for the great photos, Nick!

Yep, not often you see a Murphy B40 with the sideband adapter....like never.
I'm not into Hallicrafters receivers, but I was awestruck by the trailer full at "2 for $30"
Good fun!
For anyone feeling hamfest deprived, I've got photos from many past hamfests at the bottom of this page
