The Eighth ORARI National Conference is scheduled from September 8 to 10, 2006 in Denpasar, Bali. ORARI, Indonesia's IARU member society, holds its national conference every 5 years to elect its new officers and to report the work done by outgoing officers. The national conference, which is attended by representatives from the regional and local branches, will offer forums to review and update the organization's bylaws as well as to provide recommendations to the government on matters related to amateur radio regulations. A Ham Fair will be held in conjunction with the conference. A special event station, YE9BALI will be on the air from the Ham Fair. The Ham Fair will include various activities ranging from antenna assembling contest, CW contest, eyeball QSO, as well as music and dance performances. In the past, the Ham Fair draws around 6000 people, and this year, organizers expect to have amateur radio visitors from the neighboring countries such as Malaysia, Japan, and Australia.
