SM029 – Hamarama and Enid Hamfests

Ardmore Hamarama Hamfest 10/21-22/2022

Here comes the Ardmore Hamarama hamfest on October 21 and 22, 2022 at the Ardmore Convention Center. Entry tickets are still only $8 in advance and $10 at the door. Flea market tables are going fast for $15. Plan to make it to Ardmore to see your old friends, make some new friends, attend some great training forums, and buy/sell tons of radio equipment. This year there will be an outdoor flea market event for those that want to display their equipment outside. These spots are also going fast at $15 each.

This year CORA will be offering another chance to win an Icom 705 Super Package Raffle. For only a $20 raffle entry ticket, you will be able to obtain a chance to win a $2,200+ deluxe radio package. Only 200 raffle tickets will be sold. This raffle includes the Icom 705 HF/VHF/UHF portable radio, an AH-705 automatic antenna tuner, some great add-on cages, wiring connections, and an external wireless display that will let you “simply add antennas”.

There are hotel rooms on site if you’d like to stay the night and amateur radio license testing will be available Saturday at 11:00 am. You can buy tickets online and all of the details are available at

See you there!
