Yes, Virginia…there are still hamfests going on!

While their number is greatly reduced, and big ones such as the Dayton Hamvention and Orlando Hamcation are getting cancelled, there are still good hamfests going on. These photos are from one that took place in Clearwater this past Saturday.

The Tampa Bay Hamfest will be taking place in Plant City on December 11 & 12. Go to for additional details. Also, the Southcars meeting and swap meet will be taking place at the Golden Corral on U.S. 98 North in Lakeland Saturday from 9am until noon.
