Hamvention to Offer Free Admission on Sunday
The Dayton Hamvention will open the gates to the public for free admission on Sunday this year.
According to Hamvention General Chairman Jack Gerbs, WB8SCT, Sunday is the show's lightest traffic day, "making it convenient for anyone who just wants to check out what's there." He said the free admission on Sunday "will make it a little easier and cheaper for someone with just a little interest in Hamvention to see what all the excitement is about," noting that flea market vendors offer a wide variety of electronic equipment beyond amateur radio gear, and that many other vendors have final day specials on a variety of items.
