You don’t have to be a contester to get involved…it’s a great way to pick up new counties, states and countries and most of all, have fun! There are also a number of great special event stations on this weekend, including…
The Lester Dent-Doc Savage Special Event
The New England Wireless & Steam Museum Yankee Steam-Up
For those who don’t know, the Dayton Hamvention is THE hamfest. Held every year (although not this year) in May, it is the largest event of it’s kind in the country. The Hara Arena in Trotwood, Ohio, just outside of Dayton hosted Hamvention from 1964 until 2016, when it was announced that the arena would be closing and the event was moved to Xenia, Ohio. There was hope of rebuilding the venue, but extensive damaged received during the tornado outbreak on Memorial Day weekend 2019 put an end to that.
Glenn (Li’l Top), KO4AWJ sent us a few pics from the last club meeting out at the Florida Air Museum at Sun & Fun. Remember to send your photos in to firstname.lastname@example.org (they don’t have to be club related, just ham radio related). Thanks, Glenn!
