Albuquerque Duke City Hamfest
August 7, 8, and 9
Hotel Albuquerque in “Old Town” Albuquerque
Bring the family to enjoy the sights, shopping, museums, monuments, and the local New Mexico green chili and cuisine. We’ll have a great convention this year, as we make the change from a 2 day state-focused format to a 3 day regionally-focused event, drawing especially from New Mexico, West Texas, Arizona, Colorado, Oklahoma, Nevada, etc. Austin Amateur Radio Supply will be there as the Anchor dealer, and manufacturers are signing up. This is a combination event, with social functions, food and beverage, tailgate and indoor flea market, commercial exhibitors, multiple simultaneous forum tracks, and operating demonstrations. There will be a Friday night mixer, a Saturday evening banquet, and a Sunday morning breakfast, each with great speakers and programs. Special guests this year will be Gordon West (ham radio educator and evangelist) and Kay Craigie (ARRL President). For the uninitiated, there will be a Wouff Hong ceremony at midnight Saturday. They’ll have a Near Space Balloon Launch, with participation from schoolchildren from elementary school through high school. A Skywarn class will be held on Sunday.
