Berryville Hamfest – Attended August 6, 2017
I attended the 2017 hamfest.
Working on putting up a dipole (higher in the trees).
Picked up a several porcelain insulators and some dacron rope.
I have the wire for the antenna elements.
Need some more ladder line, a couple pulleys and a little more planning.
Did not see a planning at the Hamfest!!!
Picked up a used Dell PC. It is an old business unit. May use with my TS-2000 HRD and ARCP-2000 etc.
Also picked up a Diamond HT antenna. Have an Opec for my VX-150 and it is shot! The Diamond is much better!
Picked up some alligator clip leads! My supply was low!
This year I did not cover the whole Hamfest. I did not take any Pictures!
When I got the computer, my hands were full so I took my loot back to the car. I just kept on going home.
Missed some of the commercial booths and some of the tailgaters over towards the exit road.
Great hamfest as usual!

Below are a series of images taken with an Iphone.
Check the post below for an image showing my tracks.
It took 1.5 hours to cruise tables, tailgaters, commercial and private vendors.
The map represents 3 miles of walking!
Not all areas are covered in the images below, but there is a nice selection!
This was a great hamfest. If you did not go you missed out!
This year’s hamfest was busy!
Much Thanks to the Shenandoah Valley Amateur Radio Club for putting on the hamfest!
