Hamfests / SWAPs / Trunk Sales

Listed are within about 150 miles from Owosso/Corunna Area

The following is a list of Hamfests &/or SWAPs that are within about 150 miles from the Owosso/Corunna area. Some events are 'outside' this radius, but they seem to draw interest from some of the SARA members. PLEASE check the individual web links for current information for event details, as these can occasionally change. The sponsoring club’s web site is a great place to look for updates on current details and see what they are currently up to.

Also check the ARRL Hamfest Calendar web site. ARRL Hamfest Calendar. They may have 'better' data, always double check the organizations website - if available.

Our list is in date order. Enjoy the information and let us know if we need to update or add anything. Some SWAPs we may not have good web links for... if you have better information, please let us know (email us).

We try to keep the list 'current', but it can be a challenge. A '(??)' means we have no official information for this event at this time (it is a 'swag' - usually previous year's data). Check their link to see what that organization has posted. Travel is at your own risk! Date information is just our best "ESTIMATE". See our 'Page Last Updated' line in footer for when our data was last looked for by this site. Beyond this, some care from you is required! Happy Hunting!
