Welcome to PACIFICON℠!
PACIFICON℠ is the premier amateur radio event in the Western United States.
This is a forum-driven event with a variety of topics of interest to just about every ham!
The deadline for on-line registration is midnight Sunday, Oct. 1, 2023 Pacific time.
Mail-in registrations must be postmarked by Tuesday, Sept. 26. 2023.
After these dates, registration is at the door only.
Please Note: We ask that you register for your hotel room using only the Pacificon rate. Please do not use Marriott Bonvoy points or other methods of making reservations. If the Pacificon rate is not used, you will not get free parking or any other hotel amenities we've negotiated. In addition, your room will not count toward the contractually guaranteed minimum number of room-nights we have negotiated with the hotel. Failure to meet that minimum will impact our financial ability to host Pacificon in the future.
We're all aware that inflation has increased over the past year. Unfortunately, for the first time in about a decade, we have been forced to raise our registration rates modestly.
