Many thanks to Mike (K8RAT) for sharing the following press release from Ten-Tec:
Dear Ten-Tec customers and friends,
Hamfest at Ten-Tec has been cancelled this year due to our plans to relocate in early fall.
After enjoying 46 years in our headquarters on Dolly Parton Parkway, we are actively seeking a new location in Sevierville that will offer more modern and energy-efficient facilities, a new showroom, and a much-needed upgrade in working environment for staff.
Our current facility and property are already under contract, and, as a result, they will not be available for our annual Hamfest open house and flea market. And, chances are, in September we’ll be neck-high in boxes and crates preparing for our move.
So, in lieu of our weekend Hamfest, we’re planning to celebrate the entire month of September with a moving sale, offering not-to-be-beat discounts and incomparable specials on Tentec.com.
Stay tuned for more details about the moving sale. And, in the meantime, come see what’s new at Ten-Tec at Booths 548-550 at Dayton Hamvention, May 16-18.

This is very sad to me as the Ten-Tec hamfest is one of my favorites of the year. I suppose the moving sale could make for a small consolation prize, though.
One thought on “2014 TEN-TEC hamfest cancelled due to pending move”
The good news is at the end of the letter. “Come see what’s new at Ten-Tec” at the Dayton Hamvention. The Argonaut and Eagle have the best receiver specs. As such I am going to guess an update to the Omni VII, perhaps an Omni VIII, or an Orion III.?
