The Largest Indoor Ham Fest in Southern Oklahoma
Let’s be honest for a second. The people of Oklahoma love their ham radios. Residents use the radios to communicate with others around the globe. The ham radio community here is strong, and the Hamarama Family Fest is the right place to meet others and take your hobby to the next level. It’s the largest air-conditioned ham radio festival in this part of the state, and it includes everything you need to enjoy this hobby. A bunch of dealers will be there selling ham radios and parts, and there will be a swap meet. Plus, ham radio clubs will be in attendance. If you love ham radios, this is the place to be at the end of October.
Even if you’ve been involved in ham radios for years, you still have a few things to learn. That’s the great thing about this hobby. You can always expand your knowledge and get more out of using ham radios. There will be several forums at the festival. These forums will teach you everything you need to know about ham radios. Learn about VHF contesting, DMR, the emergency manager interface, and more during the festival. And don’t worry about feeling bored in these forums. The forums are always entertaining and informative, so you’ll be sure to have a good time. If you have kids, bring them along to the forums too. That’s an easy way to get them involved in ham radios.
What’s a festival without prizes? The Hamarama Family Fun Fest is loaded with prizes, including an epic grand prize. One lucky winner will receive a Kenwood TS-480 SAT all mode portable and mobile transceiver. This transceiver retails at $1,499.99, so it’s no wonder people are so excited this year.
Don’t feel disappointed if you don’t win the grand prize. There will be lots of other cool prizes, as well. Between the hourly prizes, scholarship prize, pre-registration prize, and children’s prizes, there’s a good chance that someone in your crew will go home with the goods.
