Committee Cancels Dayton Hamvention 2020
by W8HJR Media Chairman 3/15/2020

The Hamvention Executive Committee has been monitoring the COVID19 pandemic. We have worked very closely with our local and state health departments. It is with a very heavy heart the Hamvention Executive Committee has decided to cancel Hamvention for this year. This decision is extremely difficult for us but with around two months until the Great Gathering we felt this action necessary. More specific details regarding the closure will soon be posted HERE
Thank you for your understanding in this time of International Crisis.
Jack Gerbs
General Chairman HV2020
