The Amateur Radio Operators Reception, affectionately known as the HAM Reception, will be held on Wednesday, April 11 at 6 p.m. in Ballroom B of the Westgate Las Vegas Resort. The Reception is free­ of ­charge and open to all attendees of the 2018 NAB Show.

The HAM reception is co­sponsored by Broadcast Supply Worldwide and Turner Engineering. Each year, it brings together amateur radio operators from around the world to enjoy the fellowship of the HAM community, and for the chance to win fantastic prizes.

This year, our generous donors have contributed over $13,000 in prizes. They include:

  • Wheatstone M1 microphone processor
  • Apple 4k TV
  • Amazon Echo Dot
  • Lots of books from ARRL

Every attendee is eligible to win a door prize, and will receive a raffle ticket upon entry. We’d like to thank all of our donors for their generous contributions, and encourage anyone who would like to become a part of this tradition to contact Sharon Devine.
