HamCation Chairman's Message

We would like to thank all volunteers, visitors and vendors for a fantastic HamCation® 2011. Orlando is the place to be, and all the hams experienced the results of the hard work of the HamCation® organization. We were blessed with great weather during the event.

The new location for the forums worked out well and we got an overwhelming number of tailgaters. Also, the RV spots were very well populated.

The preparations for 2012 have already started. We would like to present you, our fellow hams, all the visitors and vendors, a well organized Ham event in February 2012.

Check the other pages of our website, for detailed information on all areas of HamCation® such as Vendors, RV, Tailgate, Exams, Swaps and the Forums. To stay up to date on the latest changes please visit the website often.

The reservation forms can be easily printed. You can reach us by E-mail, and through our new HamCation® phone number, available 24/7. We will always answer you in a timely manner.

The first reservations are already coming in. Our vendors understand the significance of HamCation 2012 as an important amateur radio event. The interest in HamCation® 2012 is at an all time high.

We received a number of positive comments and also positive suggestions for improvement. We take your comments seriously and hope you will see improvements during HamCation® 2012.

See you at HamCation® 2012!
