Ham Holiday 2020 Online Event

This year we operated as a free online YouTube event and we filled the day with the sessions and forums that you can watch from anywhere via the links below. Apparently, the first converted hamfest in the country!

Many thanks to Tim Duffy K3LR and the DX Engineering folks for sponsoring prizes for Ham Holiday 2020.
Congrats to our $100 gift certificate prize winners Aaron Scott K5ATG and Jeff Martin K5WE!

Don’t Forget Our Annual Sponsors!

Without our amateur radio vendors, we wouldn’t have the gear we need to run the hobby. Each year these vendors support hamfests, including ours, and we want to make sure you visit these sponsors when you need some radio gear. They may not be physically here, but they all are ready to help you obtain your next radio gear. When you work with these vendors, please be sure to tell them we appreciate their efforts at Ham Holiday!
