Dayton Hamvention Next Week
The Dayton Hamvention, May 18–20, is
a cut above the typical day-long swapmeet-type gathering.
Make no mistake it
does have the required (and beloved) flea market, but it offers more than its
share of exhibitors and educational/informational sessions.
Expected at the Hara
Arena in Dayton are dozens of exhibitors including manufacturers such as
Comtek, Icom, Kenwood, Winradio and Yaesu.
The show also offers
a lengthy list of educational sessions that range from do-it-yourself projects
to antenna physics to practical ham techniques to ham radio activity in other
countries. The American Relay Radio League presents many of these sessions.
There will also be
ham radio classes that lead to an Amateur Radio Technician Class ham radio
license — all in one day.
