Blast from the past! (Videos)
« on: April 03, 2009, 02:38:13 PM »
*** Continuing the tradition of Hosstraders, a.k.a. NEAR-Fest (New England Amateur Radio Festival) ***

While we are talking about YouTube videos, here are a few videos done by my childhood buddy and fraternal HAM Radio friend, Scott Mitchell - WA1MYQ. The first one captures Hosstraders at the Deerfield Fairgrounds back in 1983.

AND, if that one is to far in the past for you to remember, take a look at the video of our RETURN to Deerfield in May of 2007, another MYQ video.

You will see many of the old boys still at it, HAMfesting away in both videos, which are almost a quarter of a century apart! I still remember my first Hosstraders in the 70's as if it were yesterday. I hope YOU'LL have as many great moments as I've had over the last 3 decades plus, at what we have all come to known and loved as 'Hosstraders', a.k.a. NEAR-Fest.


Sincere  7 3,

OMG, I have some Hosstraders vintage 1990/1991 on VHS.  ;D

I'll have to post it when I digitize it. People were selling Commodore 64's by the box-load back then (for packet?).

Yeah, do it!  I'm sure that lots of us would enjoy those vids a lot.  Those were fun days.
