2021 Orlando Hamcation and ARRL National Convention Cancelled


The continuing Coronavirus pandemic has prompted the cancellation of the 2021 Orlando Hamcation® next February. The Hamcation was also going to be hosting the 2021 ARRL National Convention. 

According to the ARRL Letter, the decision was made jointly by the Orlando Amateur Radio Club and the ARRL. Both events have been rescheduled for February 10-13, 2022. Hamcation was the only major U.S. hamfest held in 2020, coming just before the pandemic prompted restrictions on travel and large gatherings.
