SMC Fest

SMC Fest 2020 held at the Hyatt Place in Bloomington/Normal is cancelled. The SMC Board is working on a online solution and we will have more information posted here as things are finalized.

SMC Fest is a sanctioned ARRL Operating Specialty Convention. 

This the place to be! First time attendee Scott, K2CUB/8 commented:

“I attended SMCfest last year for the first time. This is a first class Ham Radio gathering. I have attended many other DX conventions and other HR conventions in my travels. This one stands out as my favorite. Great accommodations, Friday dinner was an added bonus, great presenters covering a wide range of topics…..something of interest to all. And, one of the nicest groups of Hams you will meet anywhere….AND the most amazing set of prizes going. Yea, I am going this year and plan to make it a regular event on my HR calendar.
