I just checked http://map.findu.com/hfest* and there is no
HFEST-16 object anywhere in indiana (HAMFEST on the 16th).  If
the goal of APRS is situational awareness, and no one is even
putting something as important as a HAMFEST on the map, then we
are failing our fellow amateurs.

In fact there are no hamests anywhere on the planet in the next
30 days going by whats reported on the APRS-IS above.  Though
there are two stations using the HAMFEST symbol
http://www.findu.com/cgi-bin/symbol.cgi?icon=\h&limit=200 a
station in Turkey and an HRO store in Portland.

Lets get with the program...
See www.aprs.org/localinfo.html about 30% down the page.

Bob, Wb4APR
