Hamvention to Host ARRL National Convention; Hit by E-Mail Scam

The 2019 Dayton Hamvention® will also be the year's ARRL National Convention, sharing a joint theme of "Mentoring the Next Generation" of hams. The ARRL Letter reports that a special track of presentations will be put together stressing the mentorship theme. The 2019 Hamvention will be held on May 17-19 at the Greene County Fairgrounds in Xenia, Ohio.
On a separate topic, some Dayton 2018 exhibitors received e-mails in late October, offering to sell them lists of all attendees at the show. Hamvention officials tell CQ that the e-mail is a scam and should be ignored, noting that they never sell or rent attendee lists.
