The Daleville Area Hamfest for 2023 is in the books.
We had approximately 125 visitors. Vendors and visitors traveled from north Georgia, Mississippi, Florida, and all across Alabama.
There was representation of ARRL The National Association for Amateur Radio leadership from the Alabama and Florida section.
