Common Questions about the Greater Baltimore Hamboree:
1. Where does the show take place?

3. How do I get my amateur radio license? We offer free, on-site amateur radio license exams at 9:00 am., the day of the event. Specific location instructions will be posted inside the Main Entrance to the hall. You must bring a photo ID. Note, Morse Code proficiency was dropped from licensing requrements many years ago.
