The President’s Corner

Hamfest Chattanooga 2017 was fun and enjoyable event.  Photos and more details to be available shortly.

Hamfest Chattanooga 2018 is scheduled for Saturday, October 20, 2018 at Camp Jordan Arena in East Ridge, Tennessee.  We are also proud to host the 2018 Tennessee State ARRL Convention during our hamfest.  It should be remembered that date selection for almost all hamfests (ours included) is driven by venue availability and not a desire to compete with other hamfests in the surrounding areas.  As we grow, we must be able to take advantage of other venues that give us the opportunity to expand and offer more to our guests, their families, and our vendors.
