I attended the Deerfield NH Nearfest this weekend and I learned alot at the seminars and saw alot of nice equipment for sale. I enjoyed being there and everyone was pleasant and helpful that I encountered. I look forward to the next event in the fall. Also it was nice to be able to visit Ham radio outlet in Salem NH. The people working there are very knowledgeable and nice to deal with. I will stop there again when I need equipment. They had all the latest radios and equipment for sale and actually running for a ham to try and use to see if you liked it or not.
