Ham Holiday 2019

July 26th - 27th

Oklahoma City Hamfest

Ham Holiday 2019 will be held at Oklahoma City Community College (OCCC) 7777 S. May, Oklahoma City. Lots of space, lots of parking, lots of forums.

This year our featured speaker will be Carole Perry WB2MGP. Carole is amateur radio's premier supporter of youth training. She will be offering training for youth at the hamfest

Friday Banquet

The Friday evening banquet speaker will be Carole Perry WB2MGP. Carole is the premier youth trainer for amateur radio and has presented at over 30 Dayton Hamfests. Carole will be talking about getting youth involved as the future of our hobby. We’ll have a BBQ feast prepared by OCCC and plenty of room to bring your friends. This is a great place to visit with fellow hams and the regional, state, and local ARRL leadership present.
After the banquet will be the Wouff Hong ceremony for ARRL members. Buy your tickets today!
