From across the country EmComm vehicles will gather this year at Hamvention to showcase Amateur Radio Emergency Communications and Community Services. Emergency communications groups such as ARES, RACES, MARS, CERT, SALVATION ARMY, DHS, NATIONAL GUARD, CGAUX or any groups who have a sincere interest in emergency communications are invited to display their emergency communications TRAILERS, VANS, TRUCKS or other displays at Dayton Hamvention®.

There are many groups that are thinking about building units and would get beneficial ideas from displayed units. Please consider to have units fully manned, functional and demonstrate its capabilities throughout the show.  Organizers encourage teams to have flyers or handouts describing the unit its parent organization. Remember, this is also about sharing information and ideas!
