Travel- getting to the hamfest
Talk-ins are on 147.060 Mhz +600 KHz no tone (after the hamfest the normal CTCSS tone is 107.2 Hz) Pete, K4PJD is shown doing talk-ins for the 2010 event below.
Here is a map to the Martin county Fairgrounds
Stuart - Witham Field. Private pilots who fly in for the hamfest will find the Stuart Jet Center across the street from the Martin County Fairgrounds- if you head west on Avaition Way you will be in the main prking area once you cross A1A. If you would like a lift from Witham field to the hamfest, just give a call on the Stuart repeater at 147.060MHz +600 (normal 107.2Hz tone- off during hamfest)
Palm Beach International Airport - is about 39 miles south of the fairgrounds by I-95. The trip time is usually shorter than map estimates as the traffic in Martin County is much lower than the national average.
By Intracoastal or Ocean
Stuart is easy to get to from Fort Myers via the Intracoastal across the state. From the North or South you can travel via the St Lucie river or the Indian River. A safe harborage is the former City of Stuart harborage and mooring field which is all newly rebuilt in 2008. Visit the SunsetBayMarinaandHarborage (the property is still owned by the City of Stuart) . At last check, mooring was $10 a night and includes some extras. The fairgrounds are only five minutes away by car- give a call on the Stuart repeater (see above info) if you need a lift to the hamfest.
