Orlando Hamcation 2018

There’s still time to get your reservation in for the 2018 Hamcation in sunny Orlando, Florida.  Many RV Service Net attendees enjoy our annual trip to Skycraft Parts and Surplus, the supermarket of electronics and deals along with the Hamcation.

This is the premiere Amateur Radio event in the Southeast, according to the Hamcation website.  We all know, firsthand, Hamcation is one of the best hamfest setting in the south.  We are planning a pot-luck meal and a RV Service Net meeting along with door-prizes!

Gates open on Wednesday, the 7th.  Hamfest starts Friday, Feb 9th and ends Sunday, February 11th.

Here are some photos of the fun at the last (2017) Orlando Hamcation:
