Kutztown Antiques Radio Meet
There are several in my area every year that draw hundreds of sellers and even more buyers. Most Hamfests have little restrictions on what equipment may be sold. Besides radio related items it has become common to find plenty of used audio and computer related equipment. Unlike Hamfests, antique radio swap meets are usually a little more restrictive as to what may be sold. Antique radio meets are generally run by the local antique radio club.

They are usually more restrictive on starting times and most have restrictions against selling items not directly related to collecting and restoring antique radios and vacuum tube equipment.

A section of one pavilion at the Kutztown, PA, radio swap meet. I attend several ham swap meets and antique radio shows annually. Living in the Northeast there are several larger shows within a days drive every year.
This swap meet has become one of the largest and best-attended antique radio meets in the Eastern U. There are hundreds of collectors set up as vendors for this event to buy, sell, and trade vintage electronics. Collectors travel from all over the eastern seaboard and New England to attend. Although there is a small charge for vendor booths, admission is free for buyers. The show is set up in pavilions that provide shelter from rain and supply power and lights so the buying, selling, and conversations about vintage equipment usually go on well into the night.
There are several other large swap meets held annually across the United States. To find listings of upcoming and annual Hamfests and swap meets in your area check my links page at www.
