Save The Dates: HamSCI at Hamvention

Wednesday, May 22, 2024 - 14:22

HamSCI will be playing a major role at the 2024 Dayton Hamvention. It will be held in Xenia, Ohio May 17-18-19, 2024 at the Greene County Fairgrounds. Hamvention is the world's largest ham radio gathering, recently scoring over 30,000 attendees per year. The Hamvention, sponsored by the Dayton Amateur Radio Association (DARA), is an extremely important event for engaging with the amateur radio community, sharing ideas, developing collaborations, and sharing scientific results.

The Hamvention 2024 theme is Expanding Our Community, an excellent fit for HamSCI's goals. HamSCI will be hosting Booth 5008 in the Hertz Building, giving presentations in the ARISS/YOTA area and hosting the HamSCI Forum. Support for the 2024 HamSCI Hamvention activities comes from The University of Scranton, the Yasme FoundationTAPR, the National Science FoundationNASA, and volunteers like you. 

Details and a presentation schedule are available here.


As always, we welcome HamSCI booth volunteers.  As a volunteer, we ask that you be present in the HamSCI booth during your scheduled time slot, welcoming visitors, talking with them about HamSCI in general, HamSCI projects and your specific research interests. Feel free to bring demonstration items and materials and to talk about what you know best. The goal of HamSCI is to connect ham radio with scientific research. So, any topic that supports this goal is a good topic to talk about. The booth uniforms, are, by tradition, HamSCI labcoats.  The 2024 HamSCI Booth Volunteer Page is viewable now.
