Hamfest Calendar for January 2010

January is a great month to attend a hamfest – and hamfests are a great way to find some deals on electronic parts and supplies.

We have listed below some of the hamfests taking place around the country during the month of January, 2010. Of course, this list is subject to change so check with the contact person that is listed to be sure the one you’re thinking about attending is still on as sometimes the hamfests do get canceled last minute.

If you do attend, please let us know which one you attended and how it was. We want to hear about those deals you got!
