Amateur Radio Day
The inaugural Warrnambool Hamfest is a new event on the Amateur Radio calendar. One we hope will continue on beyond this event.
It came about from the desire of us hams here in the Western District to get something happening post lockdown.
With restrictions easing we felt the time was right to organise an event that was local to us. Whilst most of us travel to other hamfests, an event of our own was appealing.
With active operator numbers growing in the district, we now have the manpower, and enthusiasm, to take on an event like this.
We hope to provide everyone a good fun radio day. Come along and catch up with everyone.
A door prize provided by Strictly Ham will be drawn.
One hams junk is another hams treasure. Buy, Swap, or Sell at the trade tables.
You can bring an item you are thinking of purchasing to the testing station for some basic tests.
