UPCOMING HAMFESTS

This is a list of hamfests in the Maryland-DC area.

I am including a list of hamfests in nearby Pennsylvania, northern Virginia, West Virginia and Delaware as a courtesy to our neighboring Section Managers.

I, your MDC Section Manager, Marty Pittinger - KB3MXM, and/or a designated ARRL representative(s) plan to attend all hamfests in the Maryland-DC Section.

We hope to see you all there.
