It’s an annual tradition — including great music and drool-worthy equipment photos. If you guessed Joe Eisenberg’s (KØNEB) Dayton Hamvention update, you’re right! Joe will also share Hamvention history and a bit about other major hamfests, including why they’re so popular and why you should go to hamfests.
A siren test is scheduled for July 3, 9-10:30 am. Bryan, WØBCL, will be running the net. If interested in helpingm please contact Bryan at firstname.lastname@example.org or Ed at email@example.com.
