The Fort Wayne Radio Club tailgate hamfest is scheduled for Friday, August 19 in parking structure number three on the Purdue University Fort Wayne campus.
The Hamfest is free to buyers and sellers! Come on out, starting at 6:30 p.m. See what’s for sale, bring your treasures to sell, or just hang out and talk to everyone. Everyone is welcome, regardless of club membership or licensure.
The tailgate Hamfest will be on the second level of the parking structure to protect participants from rain, sun, mosquitoes, etc. It’s a nice location! Limited 120-volt power is available to check out purchases.
If you have a major item to sell (such as a rig or antenna system) you can improve your chances of selling it by sending a photo and description to Steve Nardin, W9SAN, firstname.lastname@example.org. He will forward that information to all FWRC members. Steve is also the best contact for answers to any questions about the tailgate hamfest.
The best way to get to the parking structure is to use the “St. Joe Entrance” to enter campus on Dean Drive from St. Joe Road, just north of Stellhorn Road (see map, above). Follow Dean Drive to the parking structure.
