For 2017, the Dayton Hamvention moved from the Hara Arena to the Greene County Fairgrounds in Xenia, OH. What's your take?
[391 votes since 2017-06-12]
  Hated Hara but Xenia was great!
  Hara was OK. Xenia was better.
  Xenia was fine, but I miss the Hara arena.
  First time going - Xenia was OK!
  Been to Hara many times, didn't make it this time.
  Never gone, probably never will.

    KD2LDP Gateway to the world From antique to modern, each one has a story. The Johnson is older than me! Efficiency is nice but there's nothing like the glow of an old tube transmitter. The twins are the favorite.
