    On this episode, we reflect on Hara Arena. For decades it had been the home for the Dayton Hamvention. This month, the venue pulls the plug. We also visit with Don, AE5DW of Amateur Radio Newsline. Don is here to announce this year's Young Ham of the Year. All of this and more on 100 Watts and a Wire.

    Hara Arena is long past its prime and it seems like it has been pretty decrepit for a while. I am all for nostalgia but in my opinion, Hara has just not maintained itself as it should have. I do hope another more suitable and better maintained venue can be found that is more in keeping with the state-of-the-art manufacturers, vendors and fora that deserve more state-of-the-art accommodations. The flea market is where nostalgia reigns supreme and hopefully whatever new venue is found can also accommodate the flea market. Of course, having the flea market at a separate venue is also a possibility I would think. If you have ever been to a large convention in a convention city, such as Las Vegas, there are frequently several separated venues to accommodate different parts of the convention. One example is the CES convention which is in many different venues in Las Vegas, though I recognize that the Hamvention is not even close to the size of CES. Anyway, my 1.5 cents. CUL at the Dayton Hamvention (notice it is not called the Hara Hamvention?)
