    Let's celebrate the many years we have all had at the Great Gathering we call Hamvention. We also want to remember Ron Moorefield W8ILC who never missed a Hamvention and contributed to our club until his recent death.Let's light up the airwaves with our remembrances of Hamventions of the past! See you on the air! K3LR, Tim Duffy and W8CI, Michael Kalter.

    Here is the deal: 12 hour event, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. EDST on Saturday of Hamvention May 16, 2020. Operate CW or SSB on 160, 80, 40, 20, 15 and 10 meters. The exchange is a signal report and first year you attended Hamvention. If you have never attended Hamvention you send 2020.

    Send your score (number of QSOs) to 3830scores.com within 5 days of the event. You can print a certificate on line via www.HVQP.org. More details will appear on the Hamvention QSO Party web site being set up now.

    Special bonus: W8BI, the club call of the Dayton Amateur Radio Association (DARA is the host of Hamvention) will be activated by designated DARA members from their home stations. You can add 10 points for each band/mode QSO with W8BI (12 available). So you can earn 120 bonus points (like having 120 additional QSOs).

    I love the idea! But why CW and SSB only? I never work those modes? What about digital modes like RTTY and PSK31?

    I think JS8Call would be a great contesting platform

    CQ Dayton, CQ Dayton!

    Anything cooked up by K3LR and W8CI should be fun, and looking forward to hearing our dear friends up north on the air.

    See you in the pile-ups,

    Some of the new digital modes don't work with the year exchange. You can certainly make digital QSOs and have fun - this is a celebration of Hamvention - with very few rules. Get on the air and have fun!
