    This is an incredible Hamfest. Mark and the team put on a great show each year and this event is on my “Don’t Miss List”. If you have not been to Huntsville, you owe it to yourself to go. I am looking forward to another wonderful time in Huntsville!

    Looking forward to attending for the first time. I've been to Dayton (many years ago), Fort Wayne and a variety of smaller ones but I hear Huntsville is one of the top 3.
