Batavia Hamfest - CANCELLED - 7/18/20

UPDATE from the Lancaster Amateur Radio Club, W2SO Facebook page on 7/16/20.......

The Lancaster Amateur Radio Club, W2SO is at Alexander Firemens Recreation Hall.
4h  · Alexander, NY
URGENT: It is with great disappointment that we are being forced to CANCEL the Batavia/Alexander Hamfest scheduled for 7/18/2020 at the last minute. Late yesterday we became aware of an issue between the Genesee County Health Department and NYS with regard to our event.  Our friends at the Alexander Fire Department and Genesee County Emergency Management Services and the Genesee Health Department worked hard over the last 24 hours to resolve the issue but could not. Being faced with the potential for large fines for both the Fire Department and our club, we are being forced to cancel the event. questions can be directed to Luke N2GDU at

RAGS Hamfest - Cancelled

RAGS Hamfest Cancellation


Due to the recent pandemic of Covid Virus the Radio Amateurs of Greater Syracuse is reluctant to say we are cancelling the RAGS Hamfest on July 11, 2020. We are sure you will understand as we are not even sure if the venue will be open and available.

The ARRL web site will also reflect this cancellation.

We will be looking forward to seeing you all at Hamfest 2021 thinking positive that conditions will be better by then.

On a brighter side we will however still be having several drawings as usual using the pre-sale tickets purchased by many for our prizes.

Thank you,

Roger WA2AEW
RAGS Hamfest Chairman
