For the Helena Hamfest we will have:

  •   No admission fee
  •   No vendor fees (bring your own table and chairs)
  •   No food (there are 3 restaurants within walking distance
  •   No VE testing (see the W4SHL website for details on the next session)
  •   No door prizes
  •   Free parking
  •   Plenty of fresh air
  •   The great outdoors
  •   Sunshine (we hope)
  •   And visiting, at a safe distance of course

This year we'll follow a value for value model. If you found value in this years Hamfest, whether from the equipment you sold, new gear you purchased, or just the fun in visiting with other hams, swing by the SCARC table and leave a donation.

Be aware that while you can arrive early, the park doesn't open until 7 am. We're scheduled to end at noon, although no one is going to kick you out if you stay later, so feel free to hang around and visit as long as you wish.
