For the amateur radio operators among us, the Dayton Hamvention (amateur radio convention) scheduled for May 2020 has been cancelled I missed it last year due to a lack of vacation time and was planning to go this year. However the recent COVID-19 news was starting to weigh on that decision.
The Hamvention Executive Committee has been monitoring the COVID19 pandemic. We have worked very closely with our local and state health Departments.
It is with a very heavy heart the Hamvention Executive Committee has decided to cancel Hamvention for this year.
This decision is extremely difficult for us but with around two months until the Great Gathering we felt this action necessary.
More specific details regarding the closure will soon be posted here.
Thank you for your understanding in this time of International Crisis.
General Chairman HV2020
