2004 HamFest's

Russellville HamFest

Arkansas River Valley ARF

VE Testing  

DXCC  QSL card checking

802.11 wireless networking forum (yes, it is ham radio!)

This is an ARRL-sanctioned hamfest

A special attraction will be Joe Fairclough, WB2JKJ, and some of the "22
Crew" from New York City.  This school has a program called EDUCOM, which
incorporates ham radio into the school curriculum.   If you are interested
in helping get youths involved in ham radio, come and visit with Joe and
the crew.   Better yet, bring a young ham or prospective ham with you.
