    The Hamvention Executive Committee has been monitoring the COVID19 pandemic. We have worked very closely with our local and state health departments.

    It is with a very heavy heart the Hamvention Executive Committee has decided to cancel Hamvention for this year.

    This decision is extremely difficult for us but with around two months until the Great Gathering, we felt this action necessary.

    More specific details regarding the closure will soon be posted here.

    Thank you for your understanding in this time of International Crisis.

    I smell a mainstream media rat creating this mass hysteria to cripple our economy and once again influence an election!

    Once this is over in a couple months the economy will go full bore. Everyone will get back to work and investments will skyrocket. Trump Train will be full steam ahead.

    These guys AIN’T into radio.

    Americans not only have brains, they use them to circumvent or solve problems.

    So, . physical proximity is a problem?

    Get back to us after the Affirmative Action types are relieved for cause.

    This WILL NOT BE the only of its type. The predictions of such (pandemic) go back before WWII.

    Buy, Sell, Trade?

    There are those who lived thru the Black Plague, did this . . and much, much more.

    My late father-in-law was born during the Spanish Influenza. Wasn’t on the side of the highway.

    God forbid an Amateur (relative expert) question the perverted wisdom of “authorities” (idiots with an office-entry badge)

    except to evade the spirit of the their own office.


    Trust, what’s that?


    Meanwhile, the horses drown and the wagons are broken by the current.

    As THAT is “the plan”

    No one — ever again — will need radios, gear & supplies?

    Truck drivers would have had this figured out in 39-minutes. Tops.
