ARRL National Convention and Orlando HamCation® | February 10-13, 2022

NEWINGTON, CONNECTICUT — ARRL, the national association for Amateur Radio® and the Orlando Amateur Radio Club (OARC) will hold the 2022 ARRL National Convention and Orlando HamCation® February 10 – 13, 2022 in Orlando, Florida. The convention was to be held in February 2021, but was postponed due to the pandemic.

OARC President John Knott, N4JTK noted that holding the convention in 2022 will mark the 75th anniversary of HamCation — one of the largest annually held gatherings of radio amateurs in the US. The published gate figure for 2020 was 24,200 (all 3 days). “We want our diamond anniversary show to be an exciting, 5-star event,” said Knott. “We look forward to seeing you in Orlando in 2022, and hope that you and your loved ones remain safe in the months to come.”

A full day of ARRL National Convention programming and training sessions will precede HamCation and will be scheduled for Thursday, February 10, 2022. HamCation will host the rest of the convention on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, February 11-13, 2022 at the Central Florida Fairgrounds and Expo Park in Orlando — an 87-acre lakefront fairgrounds.

HamCation can be followed on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
