International HAM-Vention

The Czech radioclub sponsors every year an international HAM-vention for radio amateurs from Czechlands and other countries. The organiser is the Radio Club OK1KHL in Holice, small, but ambitious town in the East Bohemia.

The first meeting took place in 1990 and 350 people were present. In 1996 there were about 3500 radio amateurs from the Czech Republic and a other European countries. The HAM-vention is held regularly the last weekend in August, when all spaces of the Cultural House, sports hall, gymnasium and adjacent areas in Holice are filled with people, who want to learn something new about amateur radio, buy new equipment or complement their old one. Some people will come only because they want to meet a person who is known to them only as a voice in a radio.

The Radio Club OK1KHL originated in 1954 and in 2004 year celebrates it's 50th anniversary. Its activities were different in different times. In sixties, the club was very agile on the radio amateur bands, and in seventies was successful in working with young radio amateurs. The Club organises a lot of national VHF/UHF conventions, championships in sport telegraphy, radio amateur polyathlon and amateur radio direction finding.

The Radio Club OK1KHL formed the competitive team, which originated at the beginning of 1997 by integration of the group . New aerial systems are being built, the inside of the centre is reconstructed and modern amateur radio equipment was bought.
