Live web broadcast of the Huntsville Hamfest :

As per information given by Tom Medlin, W5KUB

We will be broadcasting again live video and audio of the 2008 Huntsville, AL hamfest this year via the internet. The live broadcast begins on Friday morning Aug 15 at 0800 cst (1300 UTC) as we depart Memphis, Tn and head for Huntsville. Just as we have done before, we will be broadcasting our drive live from the car. Then we will broadcast the hamfest all day Saturday Aug 16 and Sunday Aug 17. We expect hams to be taking part in the Huntsville hamfest from all over the world. Hams will be able to join in with a real time chat room while they are watching the video. Viewers will also be randomly selected throughout the days and be eligible to win a great prize Sunday afternoon. Video quality should be many times better than past hamfests that we have broadcasted as we have added a new improved camera this year. Then from there, the video is streamed on our server which has unlimited bandwidth to our viewers. In addition to our live video page, you will also see a link that takes you to a page that shows a world map and on it you will see where all the virtual visitors are located. Watch as the helmet cam takes you on a virtual tour of all the tables and booths there. If you can not be there in person go to and join in all the fun.

Look for the link on the webpage with more detail on the prize.
