HamXposition August 26th,27th and 28th at the Crowne Plaza in Marlborough MA https://hamxposition.org/

Special HamXposition convention room rate $109 per night, includes breakfast! You must call the hotel direct at (508) 460-0700 to book your room. I'd like to mention there is a lovely lounge in the hotel where SNE members could discuss scanning.

Saturday evening may be a nice time for a small get together in the lounge.

We all take Friday off for these things. Friday is always the biggest day. What we need is both sellers and buyers to show up on Sunday that is the day that is always a ghost town.

I understand there will be a lot of Tetra at this event this year since the Westborough P25 repeater is down. The analog 900MHz repeater will be ther as usual and I will have 5 loaner radios as usual for that.

Okay this event is this weekend now (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) and I'm curious how many scan-ne folks will be joining us. We could have a little get together if we have a bunch. Their is a hotel lounge and restaurant as well as many places in the neighborhood. I will be there all three days. I will have a few loaner radios on site too for folks without.

If you folks end up doing something Saturday night, I'd be down for dropping by and putting some faces with names! Unfortunately I can't make much of the hamfest itself this year due to work and family stuff. Don't plan around me, though!

But... But, who goes to a hamfest without a radio?! :t

If I spend too much money at the flea, I might need a drink to forget about it!
Ill be sure to bring my 900 radio for the portable repeater in addition to using N1PFC

I hope Scott the Grandmaster Flash of Scan-NE is coming cause he has the best stories of what we all went through in the early days of scanner websites.

5 or 6 works for a drink, although mine will have to be non-alcoholic for the time. I'll pretend my ginger ale is beer. :beer:
