    EGARA Sets May 12, 2018 for Next Annual Hamfest

    East Greenbush Fire Company, 68 Phillips Road in East Greenbush, N.Y. 12144

    Talk-in will be available on 147.270 (+), PL 94.8 Hz. GPS Coordinates are: N 42° 35.687’ — W 73° 43.230’


    It's official! Hamfest 2018 will be held on Saturday, May 12th! As in the past, it is presently slated to be held at the East Greenbush Fire House, using the facility's covered pavilion to make it a "rain or shine" event.


    The 2018 Hamfest will mark the 15th year that EGARA has held the annual event -- and it's expected to be better than ever!


    Based on past experience, over 200 hams are expected to attend, along with vendors who will be selling both new and used gear. Tailgaters will also again have the opportunity to sell, buy, and swap radios, accessories, antennas and more.

    The plan is also to expand the menu offerings provided by the club. Many of those who attended the Hamfest last May remarked about the excellent quality of the food, including the fresh, juicy hamburgers and the deli-style hotdogs. EGARA again plans to team up with its restaurant supply house to provide top-quality food and beverage items at reasonable prices.


    Raffles and giveaways will also plentiful throughout the day, ending with a drawing for the grand prize. Last year it was a brand new Yaesu FT-7900R dual band mobile radio and antenna. Runner-up prizes featured a dual band HT radio and a 50/50 raffle.
