Hamcation 2010

There’s still time to get your reservation in for this year’s Hamcation in sunny Orlando, Florida (reservation form at bottom of this article).  We’ll plan on our annual trip to Skycraft Parts and Surplus, the supermarket of electronics and deals.  We’ll have great afternoon socials, and the wonderful Florida weather we’re wishing we already had.  And, if anyone brings a ping pong table, we’ll have singles and doubles ping pong.  What else could you want?  There’s more.

This is the premiere Amateur Radio event in the Southeast, according to the Hamcation 2010 website.  We all know, firsthand, Hamcation is the best hamfest setting in the south.  Our RV Service Net group camps together on a grassy level site beside the lake at the Central Florida Fairgrounds.  Bring finger food to share for our socials every afternoon.

We’ll see and be able to visit over 100 vendors under roof.  The Hamcation organizers have arranged sixteen forums on a wide variety of topics.  OARC is conducting two exams sessions on Saturday for all classes of licenses.  We can browse extensive tailgate sales all over the fairgrounds.  And we’ll enjoy the suspense each day wondering if we’ve get one of the many door prizes.

Gates open on Wednesday, the 10th.  Hamfest starts Friday, 12 Feb and ends Sunday, 14 February.  The hamfest street address is 4603 West Colonial Dr, Orlando, FL 32808.
