Ok, so it’s not in Lakeland, but the Melbourne Hamfest is coming! The 56th Annual Melbourne Hamfest and ARRL Florida State Convention is coming October 8-9 at the Melbourne Auditorium, 625 E Hibiscus Blvd in Melboune, FL.
I could be biased (maybe because it’s where I passed my Novice exam in 1987) but Melbourne is one of the best hamfests around. There are always deals to be had, there’s a great tailgate area and always good forums.
