According to the ARRL Letter, the rally was open to hams and potential hams between the ages of 11 and 26. It was scheduled to start with the annual Dayton Youth Forum, led by CQ contributor Carole Perry, WB2MGP, followed by a group lunch and an afternoon filled with hands-on demonstrations and various ham radio activities. Pre-registration was required and a $20 fee covered the cost of lunch, a t-shirt and various materials.
