Thanks to Tom (W3TOM), the WBCCI RV Service Net will have courtesy repeater access at HamCation to his 70 cm (440 mHz) repeater. The repeater will be operating on 444.500 mHz + (127.3 Hz) and it should provide excellent coverage of the fairgrounds and HamCation site during the event.
Please reserve the time scheduled for the RV Service Net’s social on Friday. You will not want to miss the Net’s announcements and the great door prize drawing then. The time and location of this social will be announced at the HamCation.

Thank you for your patience while this problem is being resolved.

There are two WBCCI RV Service Net events coming up in the next several months. They are the Net Rally at the 2016 Orlando HamCation and the Pacific RV Service Net Rally in Banning, Calif.
The 2016 Orlando HamCation will be the site of the 2016 ARRL National Convention. Our RV Service Net group camps together on a grassy level site beside the lake at the Central Florida Fairgrounds. A reservation form is available on the HamCation website.
HamCation will take place February 12-14 at the Central Florida Fair and Expo Park in Orlando.
The HamCation website explains how to obtain convention tickets and offers more information about forums, exhibits, exam sessions, and local accommodations — some offering special convention rates. Convention tickets are $13 in advance or $15 at the gate, offering admission for all 3 days.
The Pacific RV Service Net Rally is scheduled for April 11-124, 2016. It will be held in Banning, Calif. More details about this Net Rally may be found by clicking here.
