Blog post category: About the Community

Tomorrow, Sunday August 4, 2019, W4DOI and I (K3MRI) will be presenting Ham Community for the first time in public. We have rented a small table in the main hall of the Berryville Hamfest, at the Clarke County Ruritan Fairgrounds, to show the site on a monitor, to hand out invitation cards for people to sign on to the community, and to, most importantly, hear directly from amateur radio operators. Our goal is to offer exactly what the greater amateur radio community wants and needs and the only way to do that is to listen. It's nice to have our own ideas, and we're excited to show what we've built, but that's just the beginning. To be a successful community we are fully aware that we must reflect people's expectations. That does not mean we cannot have innovative ideas of our own, it does mean that those ideas have to fill a genuine need.

Berryville will not be our last Hamfest. We will most certainly be presenting the Community at future hamfests both in our region and throughout the U.S. and Canada.

We hope to see many of our members, many of our friends, and to make new ones.

It was great meeting you guys at Berryville today, love the site. Went to the home QTH when I left the Hamfest and signed up. The meeting of the Page Valley Amateur Radio Club is Thursday August 8, I am hoping to sell the Club on hamcommunity.com, I can't imagine it will be any trouble, sells itself:)

I went to the hamfest today as well.  This was not only HamCommunity's first hamfest, it was my first one as well.  I had a great time and i am glad i stopped by and meet with you all today.  This is exciting and new and i have a feeling it will take off.  I will be telling my club members about this.  Best of luck to you all.

First hamfest!! Fantastic. Make it a point to go to Hamvention in Xenia one year as well. That's the ultimate hamfest, so to speak.

Fantastic and thank you all for being early adopters. We're hoping to deliver on our promise.

The members of the Shenandoah Valley ARC, hosts for the Berryville Hamfest, were delighted to have you with us. We look forward to further conversations and I hope you made lots of good contacts. The vision of what you have in mind is exciting.
