Sign Up for the Wouff Hong Here
The Wouff-Hong is amateur radio's most sacred symbol and stands for the enforcement of law and order in amateur operation.
During Greater Louisville Hamfest 2016 and ARRL Kentucky State Convention, Amateur Radio Operators who are ARRL Members are invited to witness the ceremony of the Royal Order of the Wouff Hong.
Each person inducted into the Royal Order of the Wouff Hong will receive a certificate, but to have it ready, you need to sign up at LouisvilleHamfest.com/wouffhong.htm. Remember, you must be a ham and an ARRL Member to attend.

BIGGEST Hamfest Ever!
We're looking forward to a packed 2016 show as we have the ARRL Kentucky State Convention. Three large rooms will be used for forums - the Adam Shepherd Room (48x20) and the John McDowell Ballroom (49x56) downstairs PLUS the Henry Crist Room (46x38) upstairs. Everyone will have a seat at a presentation this year! An elevator is available for upstairs access. This will be our largest and most ambitious hamfest since 2004 - when we were first at PSCC! (Yep, this is year 12 at Paroquet Springs Conference Centre! Beautiful facility and great folks to work with!) Details will be announced as more plans are finalized.
GLH-2016 will be the largest Amateur Radio event of the year in Kentuckiana. We know you will want to be there for the fun. Mark your calendar and plan to join us!
We need enthusiastic hams ready to work behind the scenes to make the hamfest happen.
