Friedrichshafen Ham Radio - Attendance Falls Again

14,300 people attended the Ham Radio 2019 event in Friedrichshafen, down from the 15,460 in 2018 and the 17,400 in 2009

The 44th HAM RADIO event together with the 70th Lake Constance meeting ended on Sunday [June 23] with the conclusion of 14300 visitors.

That’s a very good value ..... this results in a generally positive picture of the weekend. We talked to many exhibitors, volunteers and visitors during the Sunday tour and consistently heard the statement “satisfied”.
— Petra Rathgeber, Exhibition Project Management

The date for the 45th HAM RADIO and the 71st Lake Constance meeting have already been decided: June 26-28, 2020 again at the Friedrichshafen Exhibition Center. With that, Europe's biggest amateur radio show returns to its traditional last weekend in June.
