So, I had a couple net members offer to take me to an upcoming hamfest, it would be my first attended hamfest. Anything I should bring or suggestions? A lightweight backpack, hydration bottle and power bank are on the list, aside from the everyday carry stuff such as a handheld, maybe toss a spare battery in the backpack. If I choose to purchase something, I didn't know what payment methods to be prepared with or if I'd need a bag to carry. Some flea market merchants have shopping bags and use Square, PayPal Here and similar services for debit and credit cards. Although I'm not saying hamfests are specifically flea markets. I'm watching a few videos on YouTube.

Take some cash. Everyone accepts cash! ;) Some do take Debit/Credit cards or PayPal, but I certainly wouldn't count on that unless it is one of the major hamfests where 'professional vendors' come.

Yeah, okay. It's just I never have cash, and, considering I don't drive, It's a hassle going somewhere to get cashback from my debit card or withdraw. I'll try to get some cash in advanced to be ready. It's nice to know that my local clubs will accept personal checks.
