Hamvention® and ARRL Introduce Dayton Mobile App

Attendees at this year's Dayton Hamvention® (which is also the 2019 ARRL National Convention) have the option of putting forum schedules, prize numbers and other information on their smartphones through a new, free, Hamvention app. According to the ARRL Letter, the designers' goal was to include exhibitor directories and maps, forum and dinner schedules, and winning prize numbers as hourly drawings are made. 

In addition, the app offers users the option to easily share their profile information with other attendees by scanning a QR code on each other's badges. The app is available for Apple and Android mobile devices, as well as a web-browser version that is supposed to be compatible with just about any platform.
