BVARC dayton news

Interesting that I also started doing something similar for Belton, through Ustream as well. I started with April, and plan to continue in October. My perspective is a little different; I’m trying to show things that an actual attendee might see. In effect, a “don’t you wish you were here” approach. Initial uploads weren’t up to my standards because I only had 3G available. However, I’m trying to work out an arrangement with Verizon for LTE access in the Fall.

The channel is www.ustream.tv/channel/Belton-Hamfest. I’m in the process of re-uploading the videos via a free account. Eventually, they will also be available at my own website, www.conchbbs.com.

We are 24 hours away from our live dayton hamvention broadcast. Help us spread the word to

anyone interested.?

This will be our 10 th year to broadcast Dayton Hamvention . Our viewers have grown to

about 50,000 in over 150 countries during the last Hamvention broadcast.

Hamvention is May 20-22 but we actually go live TOMORROW at 1300 UTC Wed May 16th as we

pull out of our driveway and broadcast the 550 mile drive live.

The video site is http://w5kub.com and we are on 365 days a year when not broadcasting a

live ham event. Over the years we have had special guests on the broadcasts.

We have over $8000 in prizes to give out again this year to lucky viewers. Some of our

prizes are weather stations, Heil headsets, Comet CAA-500 antenna analyzers, AlphaAmp watt

meters, D-star radios, yasue HTs, TenTec desk mics, G5RV antennas, and much more. After

hamvention, we will be broadcasting our 550 mile trip back to Memphis on Sunday afternoon.

We have installed a new Ka Band internet satellite uplink this year in our fleamarket space

so we will be broadcasting High Def video this year. This is a first for us.

Log into the chat room and talk directly to us, ask questions to those we are interviewing

or just chat with each other.
