Ham Radio 2019 - Friedrichshafen : 21-23 June 2019
There's a full programme of lectures in the central auditorium during the three days of Ham Radio 2019.
The flea market is full of Amateur Radio history, including this Eddystone Radio EC10 receiver.... ... meanwhile on the IARU stand Don G3BJ and Hans PB2T are working on projects to safeguard the future of Amateur Radio.
It was standing room only for Joe K1JT's Saturday morning lecture on FT8 (and FT4).... ... the lecture on FT8 included this list of callsigns that appear to be running FT8 almost continuously as a "Robot".
The ARRL again provided a DXCC Card checking service. However the number of cards checked each year falls as LoTW plays an ever more significant role. Dan N1ND kindly checks the one paper QSL being submitted by G3TXF. In years gone by there would have been several dozen paper cards to be checked. But not any more! The European DX Foundation was one of several DX foundations that took part in the new "DX-Plaza" which brought together in one place many of the DX foundations.
The two halls for the Flea Market were buzzing as ever. But much of the stuff looks like it's been at the show for several years running!
Plenty of interest in the numerous displays of historic radio gear.
