2017 Texas City Mega Auction

Once again we will be having our summer mega auction at the Texas City Ham-fest put on by the Tidelands Amateur Radio Society.

More information about the ham fest can be found here http://texascityhamfest.org/

Mark your calendars for July 8th, 2017 and join us at the Doyle Convention Center, located at 2010 5th Ave. N. in Texas City

This is a very large venue and admission to the Hamfest is only $5.00 at the door.  You do not need to be a HAM to attend and you do not have to attend the Ham-fest to participate in our auction.  The doors of the Hamfest open at 8:00 AM.  The HVRA auction will begin at Noon.

All HVRA members are always welcome to bid at our auctions without charge. Any Hamfest attendees who are not HVRA members will be required to pay a $2.00 fee for an auction bidders card.

We will have A LOT OF RADIOS at this auction. Items from the estate of our recently deceased members, Walter Troyer and Arnie Sanchez, will be featured. HVRA members are welcome to bring their items to sell as well.   Please come to this MEGA AUCTION and enjoy the radios!
