Post Washington Hamfest

Is anyone going to the Washington Hamfest. If so I would like to meet up with at it.

I am looking for info on any 2m repeater from Potosi, MO to Washington, MO area. I have the repeater info for Washington. But do not it for the St Clair, MO and Cuba, Steeleville.

I guess I was the only one that went to the Washington, MO Hamfest. I picked up some good stuff. I did not pass the Extra Exam that I went to take. I wish that thank all who responded to inquiry.

David, most of that info should be on the missouri repeater council's website at www.missourirepeater.org. Although this is after the fact the 145.150 and the 146.805 out of Sullivan would have fit your needs.

The St. Charles Hamfest is okay but not that exceptionally amazing. If you are going to be new to the area here is a quick run down of the fests in the MO/IL greater St. Louis area.

Aug - St. Charles County ARC Hamfest - St. Charles MO
Oct - St. Louis Amateur Radio Club's Halloween Hamfest - Kirkwood MO
Jan - St. Louis and Suburban Radio Club's Winterfest - Collinsville IL
Apr - Lewis & Clark ARC Hamfest - Alton IL
Jun - Egyptian ARC Hamfest - Granite City(?) IL
Jul - Zero Beater's ARC Washington Hamfest - Washington MO

There are a couple of other small swapfests like the Jefferson County ARC's one in May. The St. Louis QRP Society just held a tailgate sale this past week at Florrisant Valley Community College.

Yeah I tend to agree. The St Charles one is okay at best. I tend to think Winterfest is the largest in the metro area. That is held every January. As far as st louis scanner activity I feel St Louis is one of the easier metropolitan areas to monitor due to the lack of larger trunking networks found in similar major metropolitan areas. Most of the area’s Fire, Ems, and Police use conventional communications

Well when you consider what Dayton IS to the ham community at large, Winterfest is very small in comparison. We had a lot larger event this past year and hopefully that will continue. It is no where near Dayton in size but for the midwest, in January, it is fairly decent.

Remember, St. Charles County Hamfest is on Sunday and the Central Missouri Hamfest is on Saturday.
