THE OVH MANASSAS HAMFEST WILL TAKE PLACE
ON SUNDAY, JUNE 8, 2014 FOR THE 40th TIME:
The OVH has sponsored and put on the OVH Manassas Hamfest in June every year since 1974
The OVH Manassas Hamfest is expected again to attract several thousand visitors this year
The MANASSAS HAMFEST now has its own separate web site! Check it out! But please
note that this other web site (as does this one) is still not fully updated for the 2014 Hamfest
and still has material on which relates to 2013 Hamfest. A lot of effort is now underway to be
sure that the 2014 Manassas Hamfest will be even better than the one in 2013!
You may prepurchase General Admission tickets, Outdoor Tailgating tickets, Covered
Pavillion Tailgating tickets and Indoor Table Flea Market tickets for the Hamfest via
PayPal online there as in 2013.
Then come back here where there is more useful info, including about the Hamfest's sponsor.

A Youth Lounge with radio and science related demonstrations and projects, a place for
youngsters to hang out, sponsored and staffed by Prince William County 4H Club and the
Ole Virginia Hams was very popular and well received at the 2013 Hamfest and will be run
again at the 2014 Hamfest. This year (2014) the Youth Lounge will include an operating
HF/VHF station with the Special Event callsign: N4H for use by the youngsters attending.
The Youth Lounge event will again follow the ARRL's suggestions and guidelines for a
Youth Lounge program of interest to youngsters. Also check out the ARRL Brochure about
"22 Things You Can Do With Amateur Radio" which attempts to explain Amateur Radio
in a manner which will motivate and interest youth.
