2017 Findlay Radio Club Hamfest

The Seventy Fifth 2017 Findlay Radio Club Annual Hamfest will be held Sunday September 10 (Gates open at 6:30 AM for Vendors to set up, 8 AM for the general public)  at the Hancock County Fairgrounds. (1017 East Sandusky St., Findlay)  General admission entrance this year will be from Sandusky Street and NOT from Fishlock Ave. Vendor and Flea Market admission will be from Sandusky Street as well this year.  Admission is $7 per person (under 18 is free).  Flea market spaces are $5 per space (large enough for a vehicle and  your "stuff").  Inside tables (8' tables)  are $20- for the first table, and $15 for additional tables.  A ticket is required for everyone who attends or works at the hamfest.

Table reservations should be sent to :

FRC Tables
PO Box 587
Findlay, OH  45839

A mailing to vendors from last year will take place in July.  A general hamfest mailing will be done in mid August.  If you have attended the hamfest the past 2 - 3 years, you will get a general mailing. We are using a new building this year with much better lighting and access, so all vendor spots will be new. Let us know if you have any special requirements, and we will try to accommodate you.

There are no advance general admission ticket sales or flea market reservations  - only indoor vendors with table reservations will be issued their tickets at the time they book their table(s).

Any questions about the hamfest can be sent to hamfest@findlayradioclub.org

CAMPING - There is a $15 per night charge for camping

We hope to see everyone there! (talk-in on 147.15+)

2017 GOBA race support in the books.

We would like to thank all of the volunteers who helped to support the Great Ohio Bicycle Adventure, or GOBA this year. Many counties participated and we appreciate having FRC and Hancock county volunteers freely donate their time to the event. Hancock county had two separate nets to run and for each one we had support from the adjoining counties; we thank you all for this. Overall we received excellent reports from the GOBA officials. Thank you all for your time, participation, and expertise.
