Hamvention is nearly here and TAPR will be present in full-force! The biggest ham radio convention of the year runs from May 20 to May 22 at the Greene County Fairgounds in Xenia, Ohio and TAPR has plans to fill your Hamvention weekend.
TAPR’s booths will be in Building 5 where we will show what we have been up to lately. You can visit our booths 9 AM to 5 PM on Friday and Saturday and 9 AM to 1 PM on Sunday.
Friday at 9:15 AM, Scotty Cowling, WA2DFI, will moderate the TAPR Forum in Greene County Fairgounds Forum Room 1. This years’ speakers and their topics include:
• Scotty Cowling, WA2DFI, TAPR President, “TAPR Activities Update”
• John Ackermann, N8UR, “SynthDO GPS Disciplined Oscillator Project”
• John Hays, K7VE, “ARDC Grants”
• Jonathan Rizzo, KC3EEY, “The Whistler catcher, a VLF module for the TangerineSDR”
The 14th annual AMSAT/TAPR Banquet will be held at the Kohler Presidential Banquet Center on Friday, May 20 at 18:30 EDT. This year’s banquet will honor the life and accomplishments of amateur satellite and amateur packet pioneer Bob Bruninga, WB4APR, who passed away in February.
The Kohler Presidential Banquet Center is located at 4548 Presidential Way, Kettering, Ohio – about 20 minutes away from the Greene County Fairgrounds. You can register for the banquet online at www.amsat.org/product/amsat-tapr-joint-hamvention-banquet-registration/. (Banquet tickets must be purchased in advance and will not be sold at the AMSAT or TAPR booths.)
The folks behind the scenes at TAPR will be at Hamvention, so you will have an opportunity to say “Hello” and have an eyeball QSO with the TAPR gang.
