Message from Mitch W1SJ about HAM-CON 2016

” Everyone, We had a wonderful time at HAM-CON 2016 last weekend. I've made available links to some of the presentations at the show. I also have videos of two of the presentations. They are not great productions, as we don't have staff to man the camera, but you should get a good idea what was going on. There are also links to Convention pictures and some of the pre-show interviews on broadcast radio. I know that there are folks who could not make it out to the show, and even those who attended who were tied up with other show activities. Depending on how things work out, I hope to do more of this in the future. If you view any of these links, please drop me a line at the above address and let me know if the material was useful to you. The links can be found at the RANV Web (in the large light blue box): http://www.ranv.org I have a few copies of the Vermont Amateur Radio Directory left. If you would like one mailed to you, please send $6 via Paypal to my address above and I'll get you a copy. I have two classes…

This comes to us from Mitch W1SJ: ” In just under a week from now, it's HAM-CON 2016, next Saturday, February 27th at the Holiday Inn Convention Center, Williston Road at I-89 Exit 14 (1068 Williston Rd). As Ed Sullivan used to say, “We have a really great shooooooooow!” And as Bernie sez, “This will be huuuuuuuuuge!” Doors open to the public at 8AM, and you want to get there early so as not to miss anything. Our guest speaker is Joe Rudi NK7U. Right now, he is at home in Nevada, remotely operating his super station in Oregon in the ARRL DX Contest. Some 40 years ago, he was playing 1st base for the Oakland A's! Joe is one of the few people who can say that he traded in his bat and glove for a mike and key! We'll have him on line via Skype where he can tell us his amazing story. Joel Hallas W1ZR is back to inform us all things technical in “The Doctor is In!” He will open up the show with a talk on Multiband Antennas at 8:30, so get there early. We have all sorts of talks on topics you want to…
