It’s time, or almost time for the 2019 Hamvention. This will be the third year I make the trip traveling from Pierre, South Dakota to the Greene County Fairgrounds. The previous two years were very exciting, especially the first year because I did not know what to expect. You can follow me on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube for updates while I’m there and while traveling.
2019 Hamvention HF Talk-In
Hamvention will be held May 17, 18 and 19, 2019 at the Greene County Fairgrounds and Expo Center.
HF “Talk-In” net next Monday and Tuesday evenings. They will answer questions and give out general information pertaining to the show. The plan is to have two time slots of approximately 2 hours each on both nights. On the air on 7.215 MHz at 1800-2000 EDT (2300-0100 GMT) and on 3.875 MHz at 2200-0000 EDT (0300-0500 GMT) each night. Operating frequencies will be plus or minus QRM.
My Kenwood TH-72A will be on and it’ll have GPS and APRS running. Let’s see if APRS will work for me going across the country. I’ll be interested to see how well it works.
Plans While I’m There
Anyone staying at John Bryan State Park Campground? That’s where I’ll be Friday and Saturday evening.
Mr. B will be staying at Francis Kennels during the day Friday and Saturday while I go to the Fairgrounds.
I’ll be using the 2019 Hamvention Mobile Event Application to organize my schedule while I’m there.
A few things I want to see are:
3. The Flea Market
Of course there’s going to be much more and I’ll add things as I go.
