The holiday Inn is just now completing its renovation and will provide us a great site for our conference. The Southeastern VHF society has a guaranteed a room rate of $89 for the weekend and surrounding days if you plan to stay  for a short vacation.

This $89 per night rate is good if booked by March 28, 2018 only.

And for those requiring a more  economic alternative, we  have a block of rooms reserved  in the Super 8 at  $69 per night that shares the same parking area  and is  walking distance from the actual Conference Center.

As usual, the conference will offer presentations, antenna and equipment testing, along with  a chance to get together with other Society members through the weekend.

We expect to conduct the Best Paper  and Presentation  competition and will offer some great prizes along with the prizes at the Banquet.  There will also be a family program  this year that will visit  sites  of  Southern Ga and  North Fl.

Conference and Banquet pricing will be announced at a later date along with the opening of registration  and  any other special  events that may become available throughout the process.  A call for papers  will be announced late next fall.
