HamCation® Returns in February 2022
A Date for Your Diary
The USA is Open Again!
The Orlando Amateur Radio Club is hosting the 75th Annual Orlando HamCation on February 11-13, 2022, 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 and now sees tens of thousands of amateur radio operators.
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 also excited to host the ARRL National Convention. The convention will take place on Thursday, February 10 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Orlando at Seaworld.
There are four different training tracks for attendees to choose from. More information on the National Convention can be found at this website:
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 over 65 vendors being hosted this year, there will be something for everyone, no matter the level of interest or involvement.
There is also a huge amount of Tailgaters in the outside area on the Fairgrounds. Attendees wanting to further their ham radio skills can also test for their license at the technician, general and amateur extra levels.
Visitors from all over the world attend the HamCation, the last show in 2020 was attended by over 24,000 ham radio operators and others interested in the radio hobby and electronics.
