This event is now over.

It’s time for the 2013 Huntsville Hamfest!!

Please join us during our live, online broadcast of the Huntsville Hamfest this weekend. (Aug 17 and 18th)

To join the broadcast go to where the fun begins!  During the Huntsville Hamfest W5KUB will interview vendors regarding their latest products, and broadcast the announcement of the Young Ham of the Year.  We will also have special guests like Martin F. Jue (K5FLU), founder of MFJ Enterprises; Charlie Emerson (N4OKL) representing Huntsville Hamfest; and many others. During the live broadcast, you will also have the opportunity to meet and chat with other ham radio operators from all over the world.  During the 2013 Dayton Hamvention we had over 40,000 viewers!

You could be the winner of one of 23 prizes which will be awarded during the broadcast!    These prizes are made possible because of our relationship with partners such as GigaParts, Huntsville Hamfest Prize Committee, ICOM, Ten-Tec, NCG Company, Kantronics, MP Antenna, ARRL, MFJ, and individual hams which have donated prizes.  In the past year over $10,000 in prizes have been awarded!  Of course, no purchase is necessary to win a prize.   W5KUB is not affiliated with any products or companies and does not sell any products or services.
