Antenna Seminar

Friday- October 20, 2017
8:00am - 5:00pm

Bishop Ranch Ballroom
Salon E-H

Trevor Hall, WA6JAU, is putting together an outstanding lineup of speakers who provide informative and state-of-the-art presentations on the science of antennas. The Antenna Seminar is a full-day event. Topics range from the basics to more complex antenna concepts. See the schedule below but check back for updates.  There will be a drawing for two Antennas at the conclusion of the seminar.

This seminar sells out each year, even standing-room-only attendance. So get your ticket early, if you don't want to miss this outstanding amateur radio event.


Antenna Seminar tickets must be purchased in advance. There is a $20 charge for this Friday all-day Forum. This includes a USB thumb drive containing all handouts and presentations available at the publications deadline.
A Pacificon General Admission ticket (aka "Convention Badge") is also required to attend.
