Ham it up this weekend

WILLIAMS—If you are a HAM operator or interested in learning, you might want to attend the annual Hamfest at the Bob Dean rodeo grounds in Williams. While many companies require that you are in possession of a HAM operators license to buy radio equipment proper, there are usually vendors selling a variety of test equipment and other useful electronic products, software and computer equipment.

At the other end of town in the lot beside the Williams Justice Center, the weekend swap meet will be held. The swap meet is a regular week end feature which funds Kiwanis activities throughout the year.

While the City Council has denied the swap meet vendors the right to “camp” at that event, you can be assured that vendors will be “camping” at the Hamfest this weekend just as they allowed vendors to do right downtown at the barbeque event.
