For what it's worth, I just received a broadcast notice on RF of the RadioFest in Monterey, California, from KE6AFE.  He lists the website (http://www.radiofest.org) and the dates (Sat & Sun).  Unfortunately it's 145.1 miles from here, otherwise I'd be there.

> If you have a hamfest coming up in the month, be sure to inform all APRS mobiles in the area with a HFEST-DDx object, where DD is the day of the month and X is the next unused letter in the alphabet for that day as shown on the above web page.
> Be sure to include the "FFF.FFFMHz" of the talkin frequency too, so mobiles can tune right in when they get close.  This must be the first 10 bytes of the object text.
> APRS is the on-air 24/7 global information resource for ham radio.  But to be useful, someone has to put in the info..
> Shucks, you can also do this for MEETINGS with MEETG-DDx too.
> Then you can find all meetings on this URL:
