2018 Hamvention photos: Inside Exhibits

The Flex 6600M is a handsome standalone SDR transceiver.

Saturday and Sunday were long (though fun–!) days at the 2018 Hamvention–I did have a moment to visit most of the inside exhibit tables. Most of the following photos were taken (in no particular order) in the main Hamvention buildings and tents at the Greene County Fairgrounds.

Again, it was especially fun meeting so many SWLing Post readers and contributors in person!

Note that the folling photos are in no particular order. Click here to view photos of the 2018 Hamvention flea market.

    Excellent photos. But most photos with people in them showed 50-60 years olds. Will there be a next generation of hams to replace all of them??

    There are a massive amount of young people doing really interesting things in radio but often they don’t gather in HAM communities. A lot of the interest is in SDR’s (software defined radios) augmenting other digital or IP information rather than voice communications (QSOs).

    If you are interested in finding these guys a good place to start is http://www.rtl-sdr.com

    I have been to the last two HOPE (Hackers on Planet Earth) conference which is held in New York where the mean age would be in the 30’s. HOPE has quite a large number of SDR radio topics covered including intercepting military satellite comms etc. It seems younger people into radio are not so into it for chatting and perhaps don’t so much think of RF communications as “radio” particularly, they see it more as a wireless communication modality which they like to experiment with.
