The 2018 Hamvention will be held on 18-20 May 2018 at Greene County Fairground and Expo Center in Xenia Ohio. Planning is underway for AMSAT's participation!

Phil, W1EME, AMSAT's Hamvention Team Leader is looking for team leaders to assist him. If you can help please consider leading in one of the unfilled positions at  w1eme[at]

  • Volunteer Assistant

We need as many volunteers as possible to help staff the AMSAT booth during the Hamvention Last year, we had about 40 people assist with the AMSAT booth at the Hamvention. It was the efforts of those volunteers that made the 2017 Hamvention a success for AMSAT.

  1. 17 May 2018 - Booth setup on Thursday.
  2. 18-20 May - Staff the booth during Hamvention hours to answer questions, enroll members, indoor demos, merchandise and book sales. (We will train you!) 3. May 20 - Booth teardown on Sunday

The interaction with AMSAT members, satellite operators, designers, and builders makes the whole experience a lot of fun.

Whether you're available for only a couple of hours or if you can spend the entire weekend with us, your help would be greatly appreciated.

Interested hams should contact Team Leader Phil Smith via email - for information.
