There has been a lot of discussion about old receivers and other vintage rigs 
on the reflectors lately. If you really love old gear, here is a tip 
especially for those living in the Mid-Atlantic area. MAARC, the Mid Atlantic Antique 
Radio Club has decided to reach out to amateur radio enthusiasts, especially 
those interested in boatanchors. In light of this, they are inviting all 
interested amateurs to a combined Antique Radio Meet and Vintage Hamfest. The event 
will be held at 9:00AM Sunday, October 21st at the Davidsonville Family 
Recreation Center, Davidsonville, MD. Davidsonville is located near Bowie, MD, in 
the Washington DC suburbs. It is easily reachable via US Route 50 and this 
connects to the Washington Beltway and the Chesapeake Bridge. For you Southerners, 
US 301 or I-95 are options.

Please note that this is an admission free event, including tailgating 
spaces. The only charge will be if you consign anything to the auction or win a bid 
on an auctioned item. Limited food and drinks will be available on the 
premises at reasonable prices.

There is only one requirement: Please leave all computers and related 
equipment at home along with any fully solids stake rigs unless they can be 
considered boatanchor class such as the Hallicrafters SR-200 and Drake TR-5 and 7 
series and similar gear.

In order not to take up too much bandwidth, and possibly offend our wonderful 
webmasters, I will not post the flier here. If you are interested in 
attending, please respond DIRECT to:    w4awm at   or go to 

Please note that the site is gated and will not open until 9:00AM. If you 
arrive early, you will find that there is no place to wait due to the narrow 
width of the state road to the gate. There is also no place to turn around. If you 
arrive early, the best place to wait is at the gas station and food store 
about 2 miles from the Rec Center. It is located at the intersection of 
Davidsonville Road and MD Route 214. Waiting here until 9:00am will save you a lot of 

73 and hope you can make it.

John,  W4AWM
