The Best Way to Spend Your Weekend: Amateur Radio Hamfest in Your Area

I drove up to Chattanooga for the 2022 Chattanooga Amateur Radio Hamfest and flea market (video below). Chattanooga is only about 130 miles from Cullman, Alabama where I am staying this Fall. The Chattanooga Hamfest is sponsored by the Chattanooga Amateur Radio Club (ARC).

GigaParts had a big booth there as did the North Georgia GMRS Network (co-sponsor of the event).

I got to meet a lot of very nice people and had a terrific time. Good food too and I learned quite a bit from the presentations given. See my post Understanding the Basics of APRS and How to Get Started in APRS

Amateur Radio Hamfest - Flea Market

The flea market was in the gymnasium and filled with vendors with more located outside in what they called the boneyard, hi hi.

I'm an Amateur Radio enthusiast. I love the hobby and experimenting with radios, antennas and software. On my YouTube channel I upload videos on the Icom 7300 and Icom 7610 along with Ham radio software programs. I hope to inspire people to try new things in Amateur Radio.
