At the Sheraton Four-Points Hotel
275 Research Parkway
Meriden, CT 06450
We're looking forward to presenting Southern New England's Biggest and Best Hamfest including lively and interesting speakers and VE examinations. As always, you'll find a large indoor exhibit hall with new radios and accessories, and informational displays.
We'll have a large tailgating/flea market area too. You never know what treasures you'll find, but there's sure to be something you just can't live without!
Make it a Hamfest Weekend!
Our good friends at NEAR-fest hold their 'fest Friday and Saturday Oct 14th & 15th in Deerfield, NH.
We're an easy 2-1/2 hour drive from there.
And this should be just about peak foliage time in New England.
Plan a road trip for the weekend.
