Telford Hamfest is not far off..
September 3, opening 10:15am, £4 entry.

THIS YEAR’S EVENT IS BOOKED FOR SUNDAY 3rd SEPTEMBER, with the linked G-QRP mini-CONVENTION social event and BUILDATHON taking place at The HOLIDAY INN, TELFORD CENTRE from 7:00 to 10:30pm the previous evening, Saturday 2nd September.

Telford & District A.R.S. are proud that the 12th Telford Hamfest is taking place on Sunday 3rd September, co-ordinated with the G-QRP Convention which has now transferred to Telford for the very first time. We are indebted to the famous Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust’s Staff at Enginuity.
A list of Exhibitors can be found on the left hand Navigation Menu. As Bookings are made, this will be updated daily. The HamFest opening time will be 10:15.
The Special Features page is also worth checking out as we had a great guest speaker last year – Noel Matthews G8GTZ, who was greatly involved in the ARISS project 2015/16.
Since our link-up with the G-QRP Club, we now plan to have several guest speakers in 2017 at Enginuity, including a couple focusing on low power activities.
