A group of hams from my hometown, including my stepfather KØDEW, are putting together the ARRL Midwest Convention this year.
Click here for the ARRL Midwest Convention website.
It will be held in November 2013 in Lebanon, Missouri. They have a fantastic slate of guest speakers lined up which will appeal to those interested in many aspects of the amateur radio hobby. They are working on special “hotel deals”. I will post this information at a later date when the details are firmed up.
Make plans to attend today, if you can…this promises to be one of the best hamfests / conventions in the region. Below is a link to a PDF presentation which includes photos of the venue and the slate of speakers already confirmed.

The ARRL has also approved W1AW / Ø to operate at the convention; if you want to operate the station be sure to bring a copy of your amateur radio license. More info on the convention as it is available!
