Gallery: jefferson Hamfest 3-27-23

The Tri-County Radio Club always puts on a good little hamfest in Jefferson WI but this year's wasn't as “little” as the organizers expected as they ran out of tickets with dozens still standing in line!  Nevertheless the club members processed attendees as quickly as possible and promised more streamlined procedures in future years.   After having to postpone last year and reschedule this year's meet by a week due to a conflict it was great to see so many area hams in attendance and hopefully this hamfest will continue to grow and prosper.

Thanks for Clark K9OA for the following photos.   The supply of boatanchor radios for both AM and vintage sideband was sufficient that several got new homes, including a pair of Kenwood Twins at K9KEU,  a Kenwood TS-830 for K9OA, and a TenTec Argosy II by W9RAN.
