I went to a Hamfest Saturday 1/09 in the Tampa Bay, FL area. It was the biggest joke of a Hamfest I have ever been to. First of all, they charged $5 to get in - not unusual , but there are free tailgate swap meets in the area that look like Hamcation in comparison. There were maybe 30 cars with tailgates set up with basically JUNK. 95% or more of that trash could have been better off dumped in the trash. What is with these Hams? Are they that broke that they are selling used components and Radio Shack crap from the 1970's that they can't even bother to clean off. Waiting expectantly for the Orlando Hamcation.
