"DX Hamvention" Theme for Hamvention® 2013

When the Dayton Hamvention® opens May 17, 2013, at Hara Arena for its sixty-second consecutive year the theme, "DX Hamvention" will reflect an important part of ham radio, the distant contact, according to Charles Kaiser, KD8JZR, General Chairman for the event. “Hamvention is often an important DX destination for amateurs from all over the globe. Working DX is often a mix of magic, conditions, and the diligent application of radio theory”, Kaiser said.

Kaiser, who served as assistant general chairman last year, noted that many attendees to return each year to Dayton to meet other hams that they have talked to on the radio. “The quest for that distant contact advances Amateur Radio on many levels so the Hamvention team is honoring DX in all of its forms this year!” Kaiser said.

Kaiser also announced that, Jim Tiderman, N8IDS, will serve as his assistant chairman for 2013. “He has been active in Hamvention for many years and brings a natural leadership style to the Hamvention Team. I will be asking Jim to lead many important responsibilities to enhance the event. It also very important to note our team is all volunteer and we continue to work in the spirit of collaboration,” Kaiser said.

A number of key vendors have already committed to returning to Hamvention® which the Dayton/Montgomery County Convention & Visitors Bureau estimates produces an economic impact of about $4 million for Montgomery County and nearly $10 million regionally. Hamvention®, the world's largest amateur radio gathering, brings about 25,000 people to the greater Dayton area. The three- day event includes exhibits, a flea market, forums, education sessions and license exams.
