Planning for GLH-2021 Has Begun
On Tuesday, February 16 planning for Greater Louisville Hamfest 2021 began. We're celebrating our 60th anniversary and looking forward to an exciting Hamfest. We are confident by Saturday, September 11- the day of GLH-2021 - conditions will be acceptable to gather for our Hamfest in Shepherdsville.
Once again we will offer the biggest Major Prizes of any Kentucky hamfest. Plus, we have a slew of some really cool Door Prizes in celebration our 60th anniversary. Some of these will be shown in a March promotional video.
If you are interested in helping to plan this year's hamfest, let us know. Our March 16th Zoom GLHA Meeting will be at 6:30pm and any ham interested in helping with the show is invited to join us.
We are also looking for hams who would like to present a 9am or 10am forum at our September 11th Hamfest. Forums are about 40-45 minutes long with a 10-15 minute question and answer period at the conclusion. If you're interested, let us know.
Mark your calendar for GLH-2021 on Saturday, September 11, 2021 at Paroquet Springs Conference Centre in Shepherdsville from 8am until 2pm. Tickets will go on sale in July. Details will be at LouisvilleHamfest.com as more of our show is planned. Hope to see you this year at the hamfest!
Scouts Return with Class & Display
Scouting will be part of GLH-2021 with the return of the all-day Radio Merit Badge class. Scouts will learn about broadcast and two-way communications, callsigns, the phonetic alphabet, radio frequencies, radio waves, the FCC, Amateur Radio licensing, radio gear and safety precautions around transmitters.
If you're a Scout, this course will help you earn your Radio Merit Badge and introduce you to the world of communications.
There will also be a display for Radio Scouting and the K2BSA Amateur Radio Association which is dedicated to extending the reach of Amateur Radio within the Scout movement.
To promote Scouting and Amateur Radio, all Scouts and Scouters (leaders) wearing their uniform are eligible for a free Scouting Admission Ticket* available at the Indoor Ticket Booth.
Many Scouts participate in Jamboree on the Air (JOTA), the largest Scouting event in the world, with over 11,000 stations operated by over 20,000 amateur radio operators from more than 150 countries around the world. JOTA is usually in October.
We are looking forward to seeing the Scouts and Scouters at GLH-2021.
*Scouting Admission Ticket is not valid for prize drawings.
