Dayton Hamvention Sunday Roundup


Hamvention Sunday saw the beginning of the exodus from Hara Arena, but for those who remained, there was still a lot to see.

Of course, one of the major attractions was the traditional "last minute bargain." There were quite a few of these to be had in the fleamarket, but Sunday sales were prominent indoors as well. Early feedback from several vendors indicated that Hamvention 2013 was a success.

A number of Sunday forums drew substantial attendance including a discussion of bicycle mobile operating, Digital Mobile Radio and a presentation by ARRL's Mark Spencer, WA8SME, on Remote Sensing.

At 11:30 members of the ARRL Expo crew gathered to sing "Happy Birthday" in honor of the 75th anniversary of the founding of Hiram Percy Maxim Memorial Station W1AW.
