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 aol.com 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.
