BIGGEST Hamfest in Over a Decade!
GLH-2016 is packed with forums as we have the ARRL Kentucky State Convention. Three large rooms will be used - the Henry Crist Room (46x38) upstairs (elevator available), the Adam Shepherd Room (48x20) and the John McDowell Ballroom (49x56). Plenty of seating for everyone! It's our most ambitious hamfest since 2004 - our 13th year at Paroquet Springs Conference Centre. PSCC is a beautiful facility with a great staff!
