Hamvention® is proud to bring you another superb line-up of forums for this year’s show. The forums are created and presented by amateur radio operators This is a great chance to meet some of the innovators that continue to push the technological envelope and improve ham radio, and to learn from the people who are finding interesting ways to use amateur radio, and to see how the ARRL and other entities are working hard to protect our spectrum and preserve our hobby from external and internal threats.
Highlights this year include:
John Amodeo NN6JA – ARRL welcomes John Amodeo, NN6JA to Hamvention®. John, a working TV producer living in Los Angeles, knows that the media has not been kind to Amateur Radio. The portrayal of Amateur Radio in the media is often inaccurate, sometimes ridiculous — and occasionally mean. Join John, NN6JA as he discusses why we as hams should care about how the media portrays ham radio and ham radio operators. Currently the producer of the hit ABC comedy Last Man Standing, John is the mastermind behind other TV hits such as Arrested Development, Sports Night, Samantha Who? and Titus.

This is just a few of the many fine forums we are offering this year on many hot topics. Our thanks an appreciation to the moderators and presenters who work long hours putting together these forums, securing speakers, creating slide shows and then coming all the way to Dayton, Ohio to present their information in front of an audience and share their knowledge! The forums staff, moderators, and speakers, like everyone at Hamvention® are volunteers. Make sure you thank them when you get a chance.
Admission is first come first served. There are no tickets and some of the forums can be standing room only or may be limited for safety.
