Huntsvile Hamfest

Nikki KM4SBQ, Steve WB4OMM, John KI4LOF

An all time “new one” for all of us!

This past weekend, the three of us attended the 2021 Huntsville (AL) Hamfest. We drove 10 hours, spent the night, grabbed breakfast then headed to the Von Braun Center – arrived at 9:10 AM (opened at 9:00 AM). We checked out the commercial booths, then perused the indoor swap tables – we walked the entire floor twice, then grabbed a snack from the concession stand (only one place to get food),. WE then walked the floor once more – and we were done by 12:30 PM! Checked out from the hotel and drove back the 10 hours!

Yeah, long drive, but we had fun! Saw some ARRL folks, the Orlando Hamcation Folks, and picked up a few “things” (ladder line, a 4:1 balun, and a memory keyer project box). Steve spent about $100, John spent $1 (a spare wired keyboard), Nikki didn’t spend anything!

We were fortunate to only pay for only the one night at the Homewood Suites…..and dinner Friday night at Taco Mama was GREAT!!!! The drive home was uneventful.

Next adventure is the Melbourne (FL) Hamfest in October, then the Stone Mountain (GA) Hamfest in November…….

  1. Sorry I missed you Steve. I was there Saturday and Sunday. We stay up on Monte Sano Mtn, rent a cabin and play SOTA. Left yesterday (Monday). Maybe next year. ~ 73 Karen W4KRN
