    The Alford Memorial Radio Club announces that its 43rd annual Stone Mountain Hamfest will be held Saturday, November 7 and Sunday, November 8.

    What is a “Hamfest’? Its part flea market, part educational seminars, part vendor displays and sales, and all about fellowship. Amateur radio operators and those interested in electronics and computers will gather to see and talk about ham radio equipment old and new and discuss the world-wide hobby. Folks who have been studying will have an opportunity to take tests and, if they pass, acquire new amateur radio licenses or upgrade their existing ones. There will be a special “Student Shack”, where boys and girls can experience some of the technologies and skills that go into amateur radio.

    As Steve Garrison, N4TTY, the Club President, put it, “There are more licensed amateur operators than ever before in the United States and the Hamfest provides an opportunity for them and others who may have an interest in our hobby to get together to see and discuss what makes amateur radio a fun endeavor that at the same time can provide real community service.”

    Chris Balch, KS4MM, the event chairman, added, “This is the only two-day Hamfest in Georgia, so we attract more vendors and more attendees than any other. That makes for a more rewarding and complete experience for all.”

    The Hamfest runs from 8AM to 4PM on Saturday, November 7, and 8AM to 2PM on Sunday, November 8. The location is the Gwinnett County Fairground,2405 Sugarloaf Pkwy. Lawrenceville, GA 30045. Free parking is provided. Advance tickets for $ 6 are available online at http://stonemountainhamfest.com/. Tickets at the gate are $ 8. One raffle chance for various radio equipment is included with each admission ticket and additional chances may be purchased onsite.

    Grand Prize Kenwood TS-590SG Radio
    First Prize FLEX-1500 Radio
    Second Prize Kenwood TM-V71A
    Third Prize Satellite Communications Kit

    For interested amateur operators who may need directions or information, the “talk-in” will be on frequency 146.76, PL tone 107.2.

    The Alford Memorial Radio Club was established in 1972 to provide amateur radio operators in the Atlanta area an opportunity to learn, communicate and provide community service. It meets on a monthly basis and operates four repeaters for the use of area operators. The club website is http://totr-radio.org/.

    Glad to see the covered boneyard due to a rainy weekend. This will be my 5th trip to the hamfest and it's a good one. Lots to see and do. One of the best flea market areas in the south.
