Bob Allphin, K4UEE, has been a ham for over 55 years. He is one of the best known operators and DXers in the world, and has significantly impacted the DX side of ham radio with his abilities as an organizer and participant in numerous expeditions, 9 of which received the coveted “DXpedition of the Year” award. Bob will share some of his highly interesting “Behind the Scenes” stories at HamJam.
Dan Henderson, N1ND, has been a ham for over 43 years, and is currently the ARRL’s Regulatory Information Manager, where he strives to help hams operate legally, safely and appropriately. Dan has been involved in many facets of the hobby, which supports his broad range of interests in general. Dan will share some of his insights into the fascinating hobby we share in a most compelling way at HamJam.
Riley Hollingsworth, K4ZDH, has been a ham since 1960 and after earning his law degree served in several capacities with the FCC, from which he retired in 2008. In his words “I enjoyed every day of my career at the FCC, but my last 10 years there in the Amateur Radio enforcement segment was the greatest privilege of my life and gave me an opportunity to pay back in some way all of the joys and rewards Amateur Radio gave me”. Riley has many interesting stories from his days at the FCC, and he will share some of them at HamJam.
