Dayton Hamfest

May 17 - May 19



It is getting really close to the ShowTime!

“The ARRL and 2024 Dayton Hamvention APP is now up and available. Find the current forums and vendors information and plan your visit. Each year you need to create a login to see the current information. If you used the app prior to this year, be sure to back out to the homepage to pick our current event. Download or update from your favorite APP Store.”

Since this is also the ARRL National Convention, visit the many ARRL forums. Additional ARRL staff will be at the show so stop by and talk to them. The Greene County Fairgrounds and Expo Center has made improvements to the Flea Market area inside the track. The path asphalt pieces were combed and large pieces removed. A top layer of river gravel was then applied and rolled. Additional rolling will occur prior to our event. Hopefully, this makes it easier and safer to traverse the Flea Market.








Please join us this year at the flag poles by the dining area on Friday morning at 10am for an opening program. We will be joined with local officials and dignitaries as we open the event.

Please be aware that you may have received an email pretending to be from Hamvention and providing attendee lists. This email is NOT from Hamvention and if you look closely at the content it says “Hamletian.” They try this scam each year.

Hamvention does not provide nor sell attendee lists. We value our vendors and attendees and will never release this information.

If you received this email from them, simply delete it and do not respond to them.

On behalf of all our many volunteers, the Dayton Amateur Radio Association Board of Directors and my Assistant General Chair, Brian Markland, N8UDQ, thank you for being part of Hamvention history.

Jim Storms, AB8YK Hamvention General Chair 2024
