The Vienna Wireless Winterfest, The National Capital Area Ham Radio Fair, Sunday February 24, 2013
On Sunday, February 24, 2013, the 37th annual Winterfest will bring hams and equipment vendors together for a full day of fun! Several amateur radio clubs will be on hand to provide information about the ham radio hobby, getting started, where to find instructional help for earning the amateur radio license and much, much more! Dealers in new and used communications equipment, antennas, cabling, parts and supplies will also be on hand to help you find the hard-to-find. Tailgating starts at 6 am, the indoor sales area opens at 8 am. The event wraps up at 2 pm, but come early for the best stuff.
And if you're ready to take the test, a credentialed VE Examination Team will be on hand Saturday, February 25, 2012, so that you can earn that new license or upgrade!
