Albuquerque Duke City Hamfest Testimonials

"When I was at the Duke City Hamfest several
years ago, I was impressed by the diverse program of interesting forums and
the variety of exhibitors. I also found the venue to be pleasant and, for
those of us coming from out of town, easy to find. Definitely a thumbs-up!"

− Kay Craigie, N3KN, President of American Radio Relay League

"Be it its extensive lineup of presentations, its demonstrations and activities, the central location to buy and sell ham radio gear, or the opportunity it provides to interact with numerous hams possessing knowledge of almost every aspect of our hobby, the Duke City Hamfest offers something of value to everyone across the amateur radio community."

− Brian Mileshosky, N5ZGT, ARRL Rocky Mountain Division Director

"The DCHF is one of the best events I have attended -- and I have attended a LOT of events! It was fun and very educational, with excellent forums and facilities. I would come back anytime."
