The 2022 Prescott Hamfest is over.  Thank you to all who attended.  A special thanks to all of the Yavapai Amateur Radio Club (YARC) members who volunteered to support the hamfest – we couldn’t have done it without their help.  We were fortunate that we had plenty of parking and no one was turned away.  There were approximately 225 paid attendees.  The weather was great and there was little wind on Saturday morning.

YARC plans on being back again in 2023 with the Prescott Hamfest.
