Orlando HamCation® will host the 2016 ARRL National Convention in February. The convention will mark the 70th anniversary of HamCation — second only in the US to Dayton Hamvention® in terms of attendance. Orlando HamCation is sponsored by the Orlando Amateur Radio Club, an ARRL-affiliated radio club, and is supported by volunteers from radio clubs throughout the region. HamCation has regularly served as the host for the ARRL Southeastern Division Convention, and in 2014 — the ARRL’s centennial — it was designated as one of the six regional centennial events. The published HamCation gate figure for 2015 was more than 14,000 for all 3 days.
HamCation will take place February 12-14 at the Central Florida Fair and Expo Park in Orlando.
