Dayton Hamvention and ARISS Working Together Again This Year:

Dayton Hamvention will support the Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS program this year by including the first-ever ARISS Forum, on Friday, May 17, from 1:15 - 2:15 PM in Room 3. Speakers will present current and future lifelong learning activities for hams and students via ARISS SSTV, APRS, voice repeaters, radio experiments, and robots.

Attendees will also learn about the next-gen on-orbit hardware systems, updates on school activities, the ARISS initiative to fly ham radio on the human spaceflight lunar Gateway, how to maximize hams' opportunities to make ARISS connections and listen to the ISS crew in home stations, and meet special guests.

Hamvention will boost ARISS by once again featuring a special ticket-drawing right before the Sunday bonus prize drawing. The winner will receive an ARISS Challenge Coin display. A challenge coin is the premium received by donors who give $100 or more to ARISS. The ARISS exhibit in Building 1 will display equipment that will replace and upgrade the ham station gear now on board. Hamvention visitors donating $10 will receive a new ARISS lapel pin and a chance to win an ARISS Challenge Coin, with the winning ticket to be drawn at the ARISS booth on Sunday morning. Online donations are also invited.
