We had a large group representing
at the 1999 Dayton HAMVENTION®.
Below are many photos taken at Dayton.
This is a shot of the main exhibit floor,
but this is only a very small portion of the
total indoor flea market space at Dayton.
Another shot of the main arena from the east.
A tower full of antennas, complete with
tri-band beam take up only a small spot

This speaker was part of the US ARDF
team during the games in Hungary showing
one of the Russian made ARDF yagis.
This is American astronaut and geophysicist
Owen Kay Garriott, W5LFL.
Briefly, HamVention guest speaker Garriott
spent 59 days aboard the Skylab III space
station from July 28 until Sept. 25, 1973.
Garriott was part of Space Shuttle flight nine,
in Columbia on Nov. 28 - Dec. 8, 1983,
which carried the first Spacelab.
Garriott was the first to operate
amateur "ham" radio from on board a
Space Shuttle vehicle in Columbia.

DON'T MISS THE NEXT ONE!!!!!!!!!!
HamVention 2000 is going to be the
National Convention of the ARRL.
will certainly be an historic
event that you won't want to miss!
will be transmitting as W1AW / 8.
All amateurs will get a chance to
operate from that historic site.
Till next year, 73' from Dayton HamVention 1999...
