New for 2024 is "Mini-Contest University," based on K3LR's popular Contest
University. CTU has been featured at the Dayton Hamvention since 2007 and
has been presented in 15 countries to over 10,000 participants. Mini CTU is
a series of contest-oriented talks and presentations offered at HamXposition
all day Friday.
HamXposition is pleased to offer a Parks On The Air (POTA) track featuring
presentations designed for both newcomer and experienced POTA operators
alike. There will be a functioning portable station operating on the hotel
grounds designed to show beginners how to "chase" POTA contacts. In
addition, an actual POTA activation will occur in a nearby state park
following the prize drawing and closing ceremony.
This year, volunteers will staff a special "Get On The Air" station, W1XPO,
to mentor and assist newcomers in making their first HF contact.
Our popular EmComm track will be back for 2024. Veteran emergency
communicators will share their knowledge and experience to help others to
"up their game." In addition to talks and presentations, convention goers
will get to see operational emergency communications vehicles on display in
the parking lot.
As always, the Northeast HamXposition will feature a robust flea market,
open to tailgaters on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. 
No major convention would be worth its salt without great prizes. Along with
hourly drawings, we're pleased to announce that one lucky person will
receive the grand prize-an Icom IC-705 QRP all-in-one transceiver. Second
prize will be a Xiegu X6100 QRP HF/6m transceiver. The third prize will be
an Icom ID-50A VHF/UHF/D-Star handheld.
