    Swapfest Ballston Spa NY March 14, 2020 8am. - 11am

    This is a smaller event, not a large Fairgrounds type Flea Market.
    It is always a fun time. :)

    Help spread the word. Please.
    It's almost time for the annual SwapFest hosted by Saratoga County Amateur Radio Assn on March 14, 2020.

    The event is held at the Cooperative Extension Building (aka Solar Bldg),
    50 West High Street (Rt 67w) in Ballston Spa, 12020.

    Doors open at 8 am. Free admission. :cool:

    We've held this event for many years, and after a long winter stuck in the hamshack, many hams see this as their first chance to get out of the house and have some radio fun. We always have a good crowd, and there's plenty of used gear to look over.

    There will also be a VE test session for new licensees and upgrades at Noon in the same facility. Contact Jim, KG2H, (kg2h@arrl.net) for further details on the testing.



    It will run until around 11 AM at which point we will close the Swapfest portion,
    and prepare for the VE Exam to he held at noon.


    As many of you know, this is just a friendly meeting, and there is no admission fee. We us the tables that are in the room for those who would like to sell some of their precious jewels.
    I hope to see you there.
    Jim KG2H

    Sad News, the Swap fest March 14 has been canceled.

    K2DLL SWAPMEET: SCARA K2DLL is canceling its swapmeet due to Coronavirus. This swapmeet was originally scheduled for this Saturday.


    NOTE: THE BALLSTON SPA HAMFEST 2020 IN SEPTEMBER IS NOT CANCELED. ONLY the SCARA swapmeet this weekend is canceled.


    Please be advised that we have had to CANCEL THE SARATOGA CLUB SWAPFEST THIS SATURDAY due to health concerns. We hated to do it, because we all look forward to it after a long winter inside, but it seemed necessary in light of current local events.

    But Please -- put our Hamfest on your calendar on Sunday, September 13, when there will be no more conflict with Boxboro. See you there at the fairgrounds in Ballston Spa!

    TNX and 73,

    Peter - W2BEW
