Several of the RAC executive and scores of RAC members attended the Dayton Hamvention in Dayton, Ohio earlier this month. The rainy weather held off and the crowds in the fleamarket on Friday were huge. There were some great bargains to be had with prices down on many items. It’s estimated that over 20,000 hams from all over the world regularly attend the largest hamfest in North America.
One highlight of the trip (for me, VE3HG) was a chance to attend the ARRL Public Relations forum held in conjunction with all the other activities. Here’s a photo of the public information officers (PIOs) who attended. At the back, far left, is the ARRL media and PR manager, Allen Pitts, W1AGP, and at the far right, Bill Morine, N2COP, the chairman of the ARRL PR committee.
