The Dambusters Hamfest has become premier East Coast rally 
for vintage and modern amateur, commercial and military radio equipment.

Next Event: 7th May 2017

The rally is located at Thorpe Camp Visitor Centre near Coningsby, Lincolnshire.  
Uniquely, we believe, the only charge for visitors and traders 
is the site standard admission charge, currently 4 per person.  
No additional charge is made for traders.

New! Indoor trading spaces available - click here for more information

Tea/coffee, sandwiches and cakes are available 
from the NAAFI and hot food from the burger van.  
For those who prefer something more substantial, the nearby 
Blue Bell Inn does a wonderful Sunday roast, but booking 
is essential as they do get very busy.

Limited caravan/ camping is available on site from Saturday to Monday 
by prior appointment (small charge for electric hookup).

For anyone wishing to stay longer to visit this lovely part of Lincolnshire, 
touring caravans and motorhomes are welcome at the nearby 
Blue Bell Inn caravan park.  (Details here)

Owners of vintage/military vehicles (especially if radio related) are 
particularly welcome, please contact the rally organiser in 
advance to secure a display location.

Talk-in GB4TCM 145.55MHz. 

We also monitor 3615 kHz (AM) and 51.7 MHz (FM) for anyone wishing 
to work the talk-in station using vintage or military equipment. 
Other frequencies/modes can be arranged if required.
