The Ohio State ARRL Convention will be held Saturday August 4, 2012 in conjunction with Voice of Aladdin's Columbus Hamfest. This event, the first convention for the Ohio Section, is beginning to shape into a rather big event. Already committed is Guest Speaker, ARRL President Kay Craigie, N3KN, and there has even been rumblings of a Wouff Hong ceremony. As a member of the Ohio Section Cabinet, I am also on the Convention planning committee.
Regardless, I am looking for volunteers to help mount an AMSAT presence for the event. What I have in mind is a table inside and a Satellite Demo outside, similar to what we do at Dayton, but I am open to any and all suggestions. I am also looking for anyone who might have a good satellite related program that would run 30-45 minutes. It may also be possible to have an Ohio AMSAT gathering during the event. I think this would be a good exposure for AMSAT as well as a chance for Ohio members to get to know each other.
I you are interested in helping out or would like to propose an forum talk please CONTACT ME OFFLINE at [email protected].
