All Ham Dinner
Three times a year, in January, May, and September, CORA sponsors an “All Ham Dinner.” Currently, about 70 hams will get together at the Golden Palace Buffet on South Air Depot, just north of S. 15th St. The next dinner is on May 11th, 2023, at 6:30 pm.
Each year since 1948, the Ardmore Hamfest, called Ham Holiday. A hamfest is like a conference for amateur radio operators. Ours happens each year on the fourth weekend in October at the Ardmore Convention Center. This year, Hamarama will be held on October 21st and 22nd, 2022.
Hamarama usually draws dozens of amateur radio vendors and about 80 flea market tables. A number of radio vendors like MTC bring in all kinds of equipment to buy. The Coaxman and his crew come over to sell coax, antenna wire, and connections. Lots of other vendors bring in antennas, connectors, batteries, and more.
We usually see our West Gulf Division Director, the Oklahoma Section manager, and more ARRL leaders.
Much more information is available on the Hamarama.org website.
