2019 Huntsville Hamfest photos: Flea Market

Yesterday (Saturday, August 17), was the first day of the Huntsville Hamfest in Alabama.

Over the years, I’ve heard from a number of friends that Huntsville is a must-see hamfest. And, boy, were they right! Turns out the Huntsville Hamfest is one of the largest hamfests in North America.

The entire event is held in the amazing Von Braun Center and is fully air conditioned–a good thing as temperatures were pushing 100F/37.8C yesterday!

I took a number of. photos in the flea market area of the hamfest. In truth, though, this is only a small sampling of what was there. I told a friend that–in terms of selection and radio density–this was one of the best hamfest flea markets I’ve ever seen. If you were looking for ways to rid yourself of your hard-earned cash, this was the place to do it!

Click on the photos in the gallery below to enlarge each image. Note that I plan to take photos of the vendor/club areas today and hopefully post them tomorrow:

    Thanks for the great pictures.i went yesterdat,it being my first time.Lot’s of cool radios and test equipment to be seen.
    My only issue was the extreme difficulty navigating doe to the packed venue.
    My favorite hamfest is the Stone Mountain hamfest due to the fact it is more spread out.
    I did score a HP 3586c selective voltmeter at a great price.Saw a lot of other great boatanchors but didn’t buy due the difficulty of transport to the car.At Stone Mountain they have golf carts that will pick you and your loot up and transport you to your car.
