Hamfest 2019 Attracts Big Crowd with Over $2,500 in Prizes
Hamfest 2019 is in the history books as one of the best ever held by EGARA, with over $2,500 in prizes and cash awarded -- including the Grand Prize of a Yaesu FT-891 HF/6 meter transceiver.
Door prizes included everything from gift certificates from HRO, DX Engineering and Bird RF, to a linear amplifier from BTech and a communications headset from Heil Sound, just a few of the 17 sponsors of this year's event.
In addition to lots of vendors, the parking lot was also full of tailgaters who were selling a wide range of gear and accessories. This year's event even attracted Mastrant Antenna Guying Systems from the Czech Republic!
The list of prize winners appears below.
