The Staff and Management of NEAR-Fest welcomes you to the 30th edition of the New England Amateur Radio Festival held twice a year since May 2007.  NEAR-Fest is not a club; it is a benevolent dictatorship run by MisterMike, W1RC and many of his buddies.  The main purpose of NEAR-Fest is to have as much fun as you can with your clothes on buying and selling “stuff”, attending forums and seminars and socializing with old friends and making new ones too. 

NEAR-Fest XXX is dedicated to the memory of Gardner “Gardi” Winchester II and our other friends who became SKs since the last fest in Oct. 2019.
