First is was "Dayton" moving to Xenia … now two other big ham gatherings are changing locations and one has even changed its name.
New England's venerable Boxboro Hamfest is moving to nearby Marlborough, Massachusetts, changing its date from early September to late July (24-26 this year) and changing its name to the Northeast HamXposition. The ARRL Letter reports that the event chairman says the new location has more space, more parking and better access to restaurants.
The Letter also reports that the W9DXCC Convention is moving to the Chicago Marriott Hotel in the suburb of Naperville, Illinois. This year's event will reportedly include both a Contest University and a DX University, along with the customary forums, banquet, etc.
