FREE Admission!

Usually held quarterly, PCARS invites all amateur radio operators and radio enthusiasts to swap, sell, or purchase ham and electronics gear. All amateur radio and related technical items and gear are allowed. Unless the owner brings a table, most of the items are usually displayed on the trunk or tailgate of a vehicle.

Tailgates are usually on a Saturday, begin at 08:00, and usually last about 2 hours.

Upcoming dates:

  • September 21, 2024 @ 0700hrs
  • November 23, 2024 @ 0700hrs

This event is informal, without the overhead and staffing needed for a full hamfest. Mark the dates on your calendar and join us for a few hours of wandering among the stuff, junk, and treasures. Or just enjoy a fun gathering with fellow hams.

PCARS Tailgates are located at:
Melbourne Fire Department Training Center
1980 Hughes Rd, Melbourne, FL 32935

For additional information, send an email to Dennis O’Quinn – K4CXX, PCARS tailgate coordinator.
