Stop in and Say “Hi” to the DX Engineering Crew at 2023 HamCation in Orlando, Florida

Pack your bags and get ready to chew the rag with hams from around the globe at HamCation 2023.

The  event will take place February 10-12 at the Central Florida Fairgrounds and Expo Park on 87 beautiful acres of lakefront property. The grounds will be absolutely packed with vendors, speakers, forums, an outdoor tailgate, the chance to get on air, and a whole slew of amateur radio activities for operators of every skill level. Plus, our own Tim Duffy, K3LR, DX Engineering CEO, will be on-site to give a presentation at 10:30 am on Saturday, February 11. The volunteer-run event—the second-largest ham gathering in the world—is sponsored by the Orlando Amateur Radio Club and is well worth a stop-by or extended trip turned ham vacation. 

Attendees can expect to see:

• Three vendor exhibit halls (see the “who’s who” list of commercial vendors here)

• “Building Your First HF Station,” a presentation by Tim “Guy” Staley, K5TGS, one of DX Engineering’s customer/technical support specialists. It will take place Friday, February 10 at 9 am.
