The typical purpose of a swapmeet is to offer buyers and sellers an opportunity to get together and buy / sell / trade, plus the chance to rub shoulders with both new and long-lost ham friends. But this swapmeet will also provide the following:

  • Demonstrations of amateur radio gear, including helping you get on the air (GOTA station)
  • Information on many aspects of amateur radio, including HF, digital, APRS, SOTA, portable, and much more
  • Opportunity for many ham radio clubs, social groups, and associations (76ers, Utah VHF Society, UVARC, UARC, UDXA, WDARC, ARRL, etc.) to recruit members
  • Chance for service organizations (SLCOARES, UCARES, TCARES, DCARES, TERT, ERC, SAG, ARC, VEC, etc.) to invite and recruit members and inform attendees
  • Information about ham radio exam sessions and courses for much of Utah
  • Radio programmers who could program your radio on the spot, depending on your radio model and where you live
