HamSCI, Ham Radio 2.0 to Combine Efforts at Dayton Hamvention 2019


Thanks to support from the Yasme Foundation, the citizen scientist organization HamSCI and Ham Radio 2.0 will share space and combine efforts at Dayton Hamvention® 2019, which is also the 2019 ARRL National Convention. Their displays will be in Building 4 (Volta), which is between the food trucks and the flea market.

The Ham Radio 2.0 area will serve to host a series of “booth talks” both by HamSCI presenters and presenters with a “2-point-0” perspective on operating and technology that looks to the future of ham radio. Presentations get under way at 10 AM on Friday and continue through 3 PM on Saturday.
