Title: Peoria Superfest
Event Type: Hamfest
Description: Ham Radio, computer and electronics
enthusiasts from several Midwestern
states will converge on Exposition
Gardens Fairgrounds in Peoria for
Illinois’ largest “HAMFEST” on
September 21-22, 2013. For over 50
years the “Peoria SUPERFEST”
sponsored by the Peoria-Area
Amateur Radio Club, the Annual
“SUPERFEST” has provided the
perfect venue in the form of two
large buildings where commercial
vendors starting at 8:00AM Saturday
through 2:00PM on Sunday will offer
new and used amateur radios and
accessories, computer equipment,
peripherals, software and
electronic components and a large
outdoor open-air Flea Market which
begins at 6 AM Saturday, September

September 22. The flea market will
host private sellers with a wide
assortment of almost anything
electronic.

This year, the Peoria Superfest

retired FCC counsel. In 1998
Hollingsworth became Special
Counsel with the new Enforcement
Bureau and managed the Amateur
Radio Service enforcement and the
Land Mobile Service interference
resolution programs in the Land
Mobile and Public Safety services.
Riley is a very entertaining
speaker with many stories relating
to the enforcement activity and
amateur radio in general.

Rob Orr, Chicago Marathon Ham Radio
Coordinator will speak on the
impact the Boston Marathon Bombing
will have on the upcoming Chicago
Marathon and Brad Pioveson State
RACES/ARES leader and Tom Cicoria
Illinois Section Manager will

Emergency Communications today and
answer questions pertaining to a
variety of related topics. These
forums will start at 9:00AM
