Hamvention is just a week away. Do you have your shopping list ready? How about those comfortable walking shoes? It’s time to get everything in order to attend the biggest and best amateur radio event of the year!
We at Hamvention have another exciting announcement. If you are curious about a topic and would like to get some info before you leave for the show, or you aren’t going to be able to make it and want to hear what’s going on, we have another way for you to talk to us prior to the show.
We are going to have a HF “Talk-In” net next Monday and Tuesday evenings. We will be there to answer questions and give out general information pertaining to the show. Our plan is to have two time slots of approximately 2 hours each on both nights. We will be on the air on 7.215 MHz at 1800-2000 EDT (2300-0100 GMT) and on 3.875 MHz at 2200-0000 EDT (0300-0500 GMT) each night. Our operating frequencies will be plus or minus QRM.
For those operators that work W8BI during this event, we will be sending out a special “Hamvention 2019 HF Talk-In Net” QSL card! This will be a unique card for those of you that collect them.
Take advantage of the opportunity to “get the scoop” early, get your questions answered before you head out, and stake your claim on a very limited edition QSL card. Whatever the reason, we look forward to talking to you on the air.
