Hamvention 2020 has been cancelled

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Robert Gulley, who shares the following announcement from the 2020 Hamvention Chairman:

The Hamvention Executive Committee has been monitoring the COVID19 pandemic. We have worked very closely with our local and state health Departments.

It is with a very heavy heart the Hamvention Executive Committee has decided to cancel Hamvention for this year.

This decision is extremely difficult for us but with around two months until the Great Gathering we felt this action necessary.

More specific details regarding the closure will soon be posted on our website www.hamvention.org.

Thank you for your understanding in this time of International Crisis.

Jack Gerbs
General Chairman HV2020

No doubt, all other Hamvention associated events like FDIM (Four Days In May), Contest University, and the 2020 DX Dinner will soon follow suit.

    Now you have made the “big time” you have been quoted in “legible news” https://legiblenews.com/march-16-2020.html 🙂
    That is a great sight to cutting through the “noise” on news BTW, and perfect if you need the news headlines using something “low bandwidth” like winlink – it converts easily to “sane” straight text for emailing..

      Woo hoo! Thanks for sharing that, Neil. I do like the format of that site and, especially, the fact they pull from so many sources.

      Cheers,
      Thomas
