Dayton Hamvention logo: The Radio FrontierFor the sixth year in a row, Radio Amateurs of Canada will be operating a booth at the Dayton Hamvention, the world’s largest Amateur Radio gathering. This is the 65th year of the Dayton Hamvention, sponsored by the Dayton Amateur Radio Association. Each year, a specific theme – such as Amateur Radio clubs, global friendship or the advent of digital modes – spotlights one of the many facets of the Amateur Radio Service.

This year’s theme is “The Radio Frontier: Looking to new methods and devices in communication”:

This year brings with it newer and more challenging communication equipment and methods than have never been seen until now. With the vast social networks of advertising and media to get the information to the public, being on the cutting edge of the equipment, getting that message out to the public, is the exciting part of what Hamvention and other technical gatherings can do. We strive to bring that together with the tried and true tools of our hobby.”

The event will once again be held at the Hara Arena Complex on the north side of Dayton, Ohio at 1001 Shiloh Springs Road Dayton, OH 45415. Further information, including advance ticket sales and accommodations, can be found online at:
