NEAR-Fest: It’s Official!

2007-03-18It was officially announced this week by Michael Crestohl, W1RC that the New England Amateur Radio Festival (NEAR-Fest) will hold its first ever get-together and flea market on Friday, May 4th and Saturday, May 5th at the Deerfield Fairgrounds, Highway 43 in Deerfield, New Hampshire.

This festival is not to be confused with Hosstraders that was formerly held in Hopkinton, NH (and several other locations).  Thirty-three years ago Norman B. Blake, W1ITT, Joseph M. Demaso, K1RQG and Robert V. Tiffany, W1GWU started what has become a highly popular and much beloved New England amateur radio institution.  The NEAR-Fest was instituted to retain this wonderful tradition.
