The National Hamfest is one of the United Kingdom’s largest radio hobbyist events. It’s held in the fall in Nottinghamshire.

My wife is blessedly tolerant, but I’ve never really planned one of our vacations around a ham radio event. (I have been known to take a shortwave radio with me to see what I can hear, especially when we’re traveling in a rural part of the country where there’s less electrical interference.)
