    Orlando HamCation returning for 74th Year in 2020

    Orlando, FL-The Orlando Amateur Radio Club is hosting the 74th Annual Orlando HamCation February 7-9, 2020 at the Central Florida Fairgrounds and Expo Park. HamCation is the second-largest ham radio convention in the United States, with the inaugural event dating back to 1946. Since the first event, HamCation has continued to grow in size. The 2019 convention saw 23,700 attendees, a record number for the event.

    This convention is a celebration of ham radio, also known as amateur radio. Amateur radio use in the United States dates back to the early 1900s and continues to be used today for both emergency situations and as a means for daily communication between ham radio operators.

    HamCation is a great opportunity for both those in the ham radio community and those interested in learning more about ham radio to come together. With almost 90 vendors being hosted this year, there will be something for everyone, no matter the level of interest or involvement. Attendees wanting to further their ham radio skills can also test for their license at the technician, general and amateur extra levels.

    The HamCation website has undergone several updates for this year, with more easy to use features and ticket purchasing system. Those who want to attend can purchase tickets, SWAP tables, tailgate spaces and make RV reservations online now. The user-friendly site also provides more information on HamCation activities, vendors and hotel partnership discounts.

    Fantastic Hamfest. Great venue, lots of exhibitors, fantastic forums and classes. Largest variety of food ever. Hands on workshop was the best. Friendly volunteers worked their butts off to assets attendees. This is a hamfest you gotta go to. Planning to be there again next year!
