After a 2-year break, amateur radio fans will gather on Lake Constance in Friedrichshafen, Germany, June 24-26, 2022, for HAM RADIO — the 45th International Amateur Radio Exhibition.
Planning for Europe’s largest amateur radio exhibition is underway, and this year’s theme is “Seeing Friends Again”. While amateurs have been able to stay connected during the COVID-19 pandemic, Deutscher Amateur Radio Club (DARC) President Christian Entsfellner, DL3MBG said: “This is exactly what we have been missing over the past 2 years. He further explained: “Despite all the difficulties, this shows how valuable and useful the community of amateur radio operators is. It is high time to re-establish personal contact – paying particular attention to the safety of each individual, of course. .”
Project Manager Petra Rathgeber added: “Together with our exhibitors and partners, we look forward to a long-awaited encounter with the international amateur radio industry.
ARRL The National Amateur Radio Association® will be one of the participating member societies of the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) exhibiting at the convention. The contingent representing the ARRL to welcome international visitors and to network with representatives of other national amateur radio societies will include ARRL President Rick Roderick, K5UR; CEO David Minster, NA2AA; Director of Operations Bob Naumann, W5OV, and Director of Public Relations and Innovation Bob Inderbitzen, NQ1R. The ARRL will be offering DXCC Card Verification at its booth, a very popular service within the international amateur radio community.
