 I'm not associated with the Hamfest or the club (ACARTS) that runs it. I
just wanted to let the folks on the BBS know about some of the forums there.
You may want to contact the club and let them know  about showing the
location on the APRS map.
The web site is:
Their flyer states that location is at the Allen County War Memorial
Coliseum Exposition Center
N 41  06.878   W 85    07.388
