Quick Hit: Fort Wayne HamFest & Computer Expo
Amateur radio enthusiasts set to ascend on Memorial Coliseum
Explore the world of radio and computer technology at the 50th annual Fort Wayne Hamfest & Computer Expo, Nov. 19-20 at Memorial Coliseum.
Ham radio, also known as amateur radio, is a hobby where enthusiasts communicate via radio frequencies that are distinct from commercial stations. People use ham radio to talk across town, around the world, or even into space, all without internet or cell phones.
Ham radio licensing classes, a youth room for 12 and under, two rooms of continuous special interest forums and new and used ham equipment dealers are some of the things you’ll encounter at the show.
