Seriously. Did you really expect us to provide any substitive information on the new radios before the big reveal later this week?
Since the chatter and speculation had tapered off, I thought I'd stir up the pot a little bit
That's my guess, anyway.
They needed to find a venue that could a) fit the number of attendees, b) remain reasonably close to Hara, and not be too expensive to rent.
I think the venue is a step up from Hara.
Dayton exists where it is because of inertia to move.
When compared to Major Ham Events in REAL CONVENTIONS CENTERS such as Tokyo, Friedrichshafen or even tiny Visalia... Dayton is a MAJOR disappointment.
I will reserve final judgment until after the show but I agree with Sal.. the USA needs a better place to hold it than some cow sheds in the middle of nowhere
