Subject: [FairfaxARES] VINTAGE HAMFEST ANNOUNCEMENT
There has been a lot of discussion about old receivers and other
vintage rigs on the reflectors lately. If you really love old gear,
here is a tip especially for those living in the Mid-Atlantic area.
MAARC, the Mid Atlantic Antique Radio Club has decided to reach out
to amateur radio enthusiasts, especially those interested in boat
anchors. In light of this, they are inviting all interested amateurs
to a combined Antique Radio Meet and Vintage Hamfest. The event will
be held at 9:00AM Sunday, October 21st at the Davidsonville Family
Recreation Center, Davidsonville, MD. Davidsonville is located near
Bowie, MD, in the Washington DC suburbs. It is easily reachable via
US Route 50 and this connects to the Washington Beltway and the
Chesapeake Bridge. For you Southerners, US 301 or I-95 are options.
Please note that this is an admission free event, including
tailgating spaces. The only charge will be if you consign anything to
the auction or win a bid on an auctioned item. Limited food and
drinks will be available on the premises at reasonable prices.
There is only one requirement: Please leave all computers and related
equipment at home along with any fully solids stake rigs unless they
can be considered boat anchor class such as the Hallicrafters SR-200
and Drake TR-5 and 7 series and similar gear. Test equipment and
surplus gear conforming to the above criteria is also most welcome.
In order not to take up too much bandwidth, and possibly offend our
wonderful webmasters, I will not post the flier here. If you are
interested in attending, please respond DIRECT to: w4awm at aol.com
or go to www.maarc.org/RadioFallFest.htm
Please note that the site is gated and will not open until 9:00AM. If
you arrive early, you will find that there is no place to wait due to
the narrow width of the state road to the gate. There is also no
place to turn around. If you arrive early, the best place to wait is
at the gas station and food store about 2 miles from the Rec Center.
It is located at the intersection of Davidsonville Road and MD Route
214. Waiting here until 9:00am will save you a lot of grief.
73 and hope you can make it.
