01Aug16

Hamvention has a new home for 2017!

Greene County (Ohio) officials today announced that Hamvention 2017 will be held at the Greene County Fairgrounds. The news was first announced by the Xenia Daily Gazette.

On July 29 word broke that Hara Arena was closing and Hamvention would officially move. Hamvention had been held at Hara Arena since 1964, but rumors swirled in recent years about the building’s future.

“We’re happy to hear that Hamvention has a new home in DX Engineering’s home state of Ohio,” said Tim Duffy (K3LR), DX Engineering ‘s Chief Operating Officer and 2015 Dayton Hamvention Amateur of the Year. “Hamvention has been a great show for several decades, and has attracted Ham Radio operators from around the world.

“We congratulate DARA (Dayton Amateur Radio Association) on an excellent choice of venue. We expect that they will produce a 5-star event, and we are excited about a new era of Hamvention at the Greene County Fairgrounds.”
