 Yuma Hamfest   Jan 13, 2015 
 The Yuma Hamfest is coming up in just a few weeks. Join Gordon West and exhibitors like Elecraft and FlexRadio at the event on February 20-21.

 Now in our eleventh year and one of the largest hamfests in the ARRL's Southwestern Division, the Yuma Hamfest is one of the few multi-day convention-style hamfests held in Arizona. We feature commercial exhibitors and vendors, tailgating, grand prizes worth nearly $14,500, on-site RV camping, free parking, seminars held in parallel tracks in two separate buildings, $5.00 amateur license testing, DXCC card checking, an antenna clinic & transmitter hunt, our famous "Buzzard BBQ" dinner, a near-space balloon launch, great hourly door prizes worth over $1000, a hospitality area, the "Country Store" consignment sales area, and much more.

 Admission is only $5, tailgating spots are $10 for the weekend, and we offer a food concession run by a professional chef. Our now-famous "Buzzard BBQ" dinner is only $10. We are giving away both a Google Nexus 7 and a Kindle Fire HDX tablet as admission prizes to two people just for attending. You should mark the third weekend of February on your calendar and plan on attending the Yuma Hamfest.
